2010 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1140100 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Araujo’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a picture perfect example of the year. Vibrant, precise and beautifully chiseled, the 2010 boasts serious depth and concentration. The aromas and flavors are incredibly vivid in this textured, dazzling Cabernet Sauvignon. Hints of dark blue and black fruit, mocha, espresso and grilled herbs flesh out on the huge finish. Today the 2010 is unusually open, but it is almost certain to shut down in bottle over the next 6-12 months. The 2010 is a super-classic Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon from Araujo.

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A unique nose of hot earth, stones and river bed with iodine, ink and currants. Full body with a fabulous depth of fruit: blueberry, blackberry and minerals. It's tannic but balanced and chewy. This needs at least five to six years of age but it is already a mesmerizing experience. Biodynamically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (5/2014)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full, deep red-ruby. More floral and refined on the nose than the Alta Gracia, offering ineffable aromas of blueberry, brown spices, menthol, bay laurel and cedar. Marvelously silky on entry, then opens out dramatically on the back half, showing insidious, savory flavor concentration but also finishing with outstanding grip and verve. The very fine-grained, building tannins are perked up by notes of pepper and herbs. This wonderfully poised wine, delivering great richness without any undue weight, displays classic Eisele Vineyard character without any signs of roasted fruit. Understated today, this beauty may well merit an even higher score eight or ten years down the road. (ST) 95+ Inner quote mark (6/2013)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure, rich and delicious, with a sumptuous core of melted black licorice, dark berry, nutmeg-scented spice, loamy earth and dried herb. Shows impressive focus, density and persistence. Tempting now, but should age well. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2013)

There has been a ton of hype surrounding the recent purchase of Araujo from the owner of Chateau Latour. Released Sept 1st of this year, the 2010 shows a great combination of elegance and power. The middle texture is lush, rich and seamless, while the finish is extremely long and spicy. The wine is still held together with a firm structure and plenty of acidity . Serious Napa Cabernet! It will be interesting to see what happens to this property after the sale. I know one of the goals will be to take Araujo “global”. Which, means less wine for us in the states. May want to buy now!
