Araujo's spectacular 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a 1700-case blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot from a vineyard tucked in the lower hillsides of northeastern Napa Valley not far from the quaint town of Calistoga. Araujo has enjoyed an incredible string of top-notch vintages from 2001 through 2005 and again from 2008 through 2010. Extremely youthful at age ten the 2002 is a candidate for perfection. Its dense blue/purple hue is followed by abundant aromas of cassis incense crushed rocks and spring flowers. Full-bodied and opulent as well as pure rich and authoritative with abundant but beautifully integrated tannins this opulent plush 2002 can be drunk now or cellared for another 20-25 years.

Firm rich and concentrated with ample tannins wrapped around a core of earth currant and black cherry fruit. With excellent balance and depth it serves up lots of rich complex flavors without being heavy offering a floral perfumed currant edge. Best from 2007 through 2014. -JL

Superripe complex slightly roasted nose combines black raspberry dark chocolate smoked meat maple syrup toffee tobacco and licorice. Dense and aromatic in the mouth with compelling sweetness and suavity of texture. Wonderfully opulent and seamless red wine. This finishes with huge but utterly fine tannins and lush lingering flavor.
