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 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005
(includes 4% viognier) Good medium ruby. Black raspberry, roasted meat and gunflint on the nose. Sweet, fat and fine-grained, with smoked meat, mineral and saline notes. Finishes with broad, sweet tannins and mouthcoating fruit. Lacks only the complexity for an even higher score.
