There are only 1600 cases of the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard which comes close to equaling the virtually perfect 2002. A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot it reveals extraordinary complexity in its floral crushed rock licorice high class cigar tobacco creme de cassis and Asian spice-scented bouquet. With an opaque purple color full body great structure a layered multi-textured mouthfeel and a fabulously long finish it is a remarkable Cabernet that should age effortlessly for 20-25 years.

Captivating aromas of black raspberry toffee mocha and flowers. Dense lush and sweet with fruit flavors complicated by game mocha and brown spices. This offers lovely harmony and finishes very suave and very long with an enticing fruit/tannin balance. Likely to age well.

Wonderfully executed ripe cherry and currant-laced fruit is shaded by spicy toasty oak that picks up hints of mocha and espresso. Avoids excessive ripeness and is well-balanced with a long finish that shows firm structured tannins and a touch of mineral. Best from 2009 through 2013. 1600 cases made.
