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

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2014

(cabernet sauvignon with 7% merlot and 4% petit verdot):  Bright red-ruby.  Deep aromas of dark berries, violet and caraway seed lifted by an impression of peppery acidity.  Fresh and penetrating, showing good energy to the slightly medicinal flavors of kirsch, crushed berries and violet.  Juicy but not green, finishing with dusty tannins and good length.  This is very successful for a second wine from a tricky year.
