1996 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

SKU #993971 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The saturated purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard offers an attractive nose of black fruits intermixed with toast, minerals, subtle tar, and wood smoke. Full-bodied, with impressive purity, a multi-layered mid-palate and finish, it is an expressive, pure, powerful, and large-boned wine. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1999)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Smooth and polished, with detailed flavors of ripe plum, black cherry, spice and light oak, this pedigreed red turns rich and elegant, with a long, complex aftertaste. *Highly Recommended* (JL) Inner quote mark (11/1999)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby color, darker for its age than the '97. Slightly roasted aromas of black fruits, toffee, leather, tobacco, mocha and dark chocolate; exhilarating suggestion of crystallized berries. Lush and velvety in the mouth; already displays wonderful sweetness and layered texture. Very strong back end features chewy, ripe tannins. A very successful '96, showing beautifully today. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/1999)
