Daphne and Bart Araujo have fulfilled all the expectations of Eisele Vineyard Cabernet fans. They have taken one of the greatest Cabernet vineyards of Napa Valley and with the help of consultant Tony Soter have fashioned a consistently great wine. There are 36 acres in production with the Araujos estate bottling 3000 cases (40% of the production is sold each year). The 1995 Eisele appears to be as exciting as 1994. The latter harvest did not end until October 23 for the Eisele Vineyard. Through the 1993 vintage the Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 100% new oak. Beginning with 1994 the Araujos decided to reduce the percentage of new oak to 75%. Some Cabernet Franc (usually 4%-6%) and Petit Verdot (usually 3%-4%) are blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon.
