2008 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

SKU #1193439 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is breathtaking. Everything is in the right place in this dazzling, superb Cabernet Sauvignon. Layers of dark fruit, plums, camphor, licorice and espresso emerge from this effortless, gracious wine. The integration of fruit, tannin and French oak (100% new) is simply phenomenal. There is a dark, brooding quality to the 2008 that is immensely appealing. This is a stunning wine from Araujo. The 2008 is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2011)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense, rich and enormously concentrated, mixing power with finesse. Pure, ripe, riveting aromas of blackberry, blueberry, currant, sage, cedar, espresso and mocha lead to a full-bodied palate, firming beautifully on the finish, where the flavors glide along and gain traction. Drink now through 2028. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Stunning. Explodes with the most intricately detailed aromas: a perfume of fine smoky oak and ripe black currants. Exudes sheer power, with great weight yet no heaviness. Lush and delicious, but just tannic enough. If you can wait, cellar until 2008, it should hold and improve for many years. Inner quote mark (9/2006)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark I have tasted this a number of times now, and it is exciting stuff with loads of energy. A nice combination of the power of 2007 and the complexity of 2006. Fabulous nose of sweet tobacco, blackberries that turn to porcini mushroom and brambleberry. It's almost ginger root in character too. Full and very soft with gorgeous round and delicious tannins and a subtle, long, long finish. Hints of coffee and vanilla. Very subtle. So beautiful now. Balanced and refined. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ruby-red. Reticent but pure aromas of black cherry, black tea and flowers. Densely packed and youthfully tight, with juicy, high-pitched flavors of sweet dark fruits, leather and licorice. At once lush and perfumed, showing lovely vibrancy for a wine from this hot site. The long, building finish displays the firm tannic structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. This has turned out very well. Inner quote mark (6/2011)
