About Araujo Estate
Since 1990, Bart and Daphne Araujo have carried on the tradition of making monster Cabernets from the Eisele Vineyard, adding Syrah into the mix as well. Their flagship bottling is dense, powerful and rich, typically with soil-inflected notes of plum, mocha, tobacco and smoke, and very suave tannins.

91-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Very saturated red-ruby color. Knockout aromas of roasted plum, melted toffee, leather, violet and tobacco. Thick, ripe and palate-caressing; tactile, lush and seamless. Great richness currently hides sound underlying structure. Offers really wonderful flavor in the mouth. Strong juice.
