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 | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012
(bottled two days before my early March visit): Bright pale yellow. Very ripe, sexy aromas of stone fruits, lime and wild herbs. Lush and rich in the mouth, with impressive palate presence, even a bit of viscosity. Hardly your typical sauvignon blanc. Bone-dry but with superb pineappley fruit sweetness. Finishes with excellent fruity grip. Very pure wine, but I still prefer the 2010 for its salty minerality.
