2017 Eisele Vineyard "Altagracia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1506994 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blackberry and tile aromas with tobacco and spice. Some chocolate, too. Medium to full body and firm, velvety tannins that show a juicy finish. Fine yet dusty tannins. Rich for the vintage. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Clear black pepper, forest floor and liquorice spice with a lovely ripeness to the rich berry fruits and where the concentration is tempered by slivers of juicy-fresh redcurrant and cedar. A vintage that was complicated by fires, although the vast majority of Eisele plots were picked before they broke out. (JA) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This vintage has a bit less Petit Verdot than usual, but basically remains about 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia leaps from the glass, offering bold, expressive notes of blackberry pie, Black Forest cake and warm cassis with hints of garrigue, mossy tree bark, dusty soil and black pepper plus a fragrant waft of cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a great core of rich, spicy black fruit preserves, framed with firm, chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing earthy. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features a solid core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit, backed by warm tar and earth notes. A tobacco leaf frame surrounds all the elements, gilding them rather than intruding. The grippy back end shows a slight burliness, but this has ample stuffing to get past that. (JM) Inner quote mark (11/2020)
