2000 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) 1-Pack in OWC

SKU #1054502 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium red-ruby. Sappy black raspberry, redcurrant, flowers, tobacco and licorice on the nose, along with sexy, smoky oak notes of torrefaction. Dense and lush, with a restrained sweetness and hints of minerals and chocolate. Not a huge wine but boasts lovely intensity and vinosity. The first vintage of this wine to include some Merlot - no doubt at least partly due to the influence of consulting enologist Michel Rolland. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2003)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complete and very complex, exhibiting rich plum and red currant flavors, with touches of anise, sage, herb and mineral. Plush, focused aftertaste. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2003)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This vintage produced lighter wines, resulting in a Bordeaux-like example of this cuvee. After 22 months in oak, this textured, perfumed Cabernet offers up aromas of black currants, earth, and lilacs (reminiscent of Chateau Margaux). It possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as medium body, a good texture, a slight austerity, but brilliant purity and balance. A lighter-weight effort by Araujo’s standards, it is extremely well-balanced and approachable. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)
