1997 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (bin-soiled label)

SKU #1480377 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard, is a beauty. The healthy ruby/purple color is followed by classic, unevolved but promising aromas of minerals, cedar, smoke, and black currants. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with admirable purity, a sweet, lush mid-palate, and ripe tannin in the finish. The top-notch 1997 is a classic, restrained. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2000)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby-red. Expressive nose combines black raspberry, currant, black cherry, chocolate, tobacco and sandalwood. Lush and sweet but fresh, with a firm edge of acidity giving shape to the flavors. Big and mouthfilling but not at all heavy. The tannins are suave and fine. A bit dominated by the oak today.

K&L Notes

91 points, Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience vertical in London. A similar hue to the 1996 but the nose is very different. This is sweeter and more opulent, more cassis, black cherries and blueberry and seems to have a higher extraction than the 1996, very opulent and vivacious. Notes of blackberry, cherry and raspberry with noticeable level of glycerin and alcohol. Unlike the 1994 and 1996, it lacks the balance and sophistication, though the finish is a little lean and lacking persistency in context of the vintage." (05/2006)
