2009 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1110006 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is one of the great wines of the vintage. It brings together gorgeous aromatics, juicy, expressive red fruit and silky tannins. Now seemingly past a period of closure post-bottling, the 2009 looks like a wine that will drink well pretty much throughout its entire life. The 2009 is a totally sexy Cabernet endowed with stunning depth and a rich, enveloping personality. This is pure Araujo and pure Eisele. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (bottled in September of 2011; 99% cabernet with homeopathic doses of cabernet and petit verdot): Dark red-ruby. Musky, deep nose offers crushed blackberry, cassis, graphite and coffee. Wonderfully sweet and rich, displaying an uncanny combination of textural thickness and verve. Strong crushed rock minerality gives this beauty an extremely youthful quality. The very long, palate-staining finish features big but suave tannins and outstanding harmoniousness. The pH of 3.73 is "not too high" for this consistently superb wine, says winemaker Nigel Kinsman. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is just one component of the final blend. It is a vineyard that was planted in 1964. It is block 3 … it went into the 1971 Ridge and 1974 Conn Creek. Joe used to call it gold. This is full bodied and rich with a beautiful sea shell and olive character. Very fine on the palate with chewy tannins. Complex and beautiful, with loads going on. Inner quote mark (2/2011)
