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.

($110) Dark ruby-red. Black cherry, blueberry, scorched earth, spices and meat on the nose. Densely packed and imploded, with complex but reticent flavors of roasted plum, currant and mocha. A rather suave syrah but not yet showy. Finishes classically dry, with substantial dusty tannins that call for a couple years of cellaring.
