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 | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999
Deep ruby-red. High-pitched, slightly floral aromas of black raspberry, plum, lead pencil and a hint of chocolate. Great velvety sweetness and ripeness in the mouth; enticing game and mocha notes complement the dark berry fruit. Already shows impressive incipient complexity and a seamless texture. Very long and very subtle, with finishing fruit obscuring the wine firm tannic structure.
