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.

Expert Reviews

89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

($75; a blend of 80% cabernet sauvignon, 12% merlot and 8% petit verdot) Good dark red. Cool but complex nose melds cherry, currant, cedar and lead pencil. Sweet on entry, then lively in the middle palate, with cool flavors of maraschino cherry, redcurrant, loam and mint. Higher-pitched and less pliant than the Eisele Vineyard cabernet, without the lush texture and ripeness of that wine. The tannins are less fine, but this second wine shows very good persistence.
