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.
92-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
(98% cabernet sauvignon and 2% cabernet franc): Medium-deep ruby-red color. Explosive aromas of blueberry liqueur and bay laural, with a floral topnote. A lovely harmonious midweight, with enticing dark berry flavors and noteworthy energy. Today there's a bit less stuffing to support the dusty tannins than the 2010 possesses but I would expect this wine to put on weight during its final year of elevage.
