On the nose, this astonishing wine entices with generous aromas of blueberry and dark cherry, bramble, licorice, wild sage, cigar box, lilacs and wet stones. On the palate, its creamy, mouth-filling texture is perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a beautiful sweet core of ripe fruit, followed by an incredibly persistent mineral and herbal finish.

Wine AdvocateAraujo'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. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035.

Wine SpectatorPure, 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. Best from 2014 through 2028. 1,900 cases made.
