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.

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998

Very deep, saturated ruby-red. Crystallized black cherry, violet and crushed dark berries on the nose, along with a faint dusty, leathery quality. Lush, tactile and seamless, with wonderful sweetness of fruit for the vintage. Already shows lively cassis and redcurrant fruit in the middle palate. Finishing flavor begins subtly, then expands into a very long aftertaste.

Rich,thick,huge blast of nose with first taste. Sediment detracted from taste as bottle drew empty. Make sure you decant and give it hours to breathe. Will be exciting to taste again....

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.

Varietal Image
Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
