Lot #2070. Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 1995

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"Araujo's Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard has become a benchmark. I believe the 1995 is the finest produced [so far] under the Araujo regime. It is close to perfection. The wine combines extraordinary power and richness with remarkable complexity and finesse. The saturated purple/black color is followed by aromas of sweet vanillin intermixed with riveting scents of black currants, minerals, exotic spices, coffee, and toast. There is nothing garish about this subtle yet powerful giant of a wine. A Napa Valley classic, it is full-bodied and extremely rich, yet retains its sense of balance and symmetry. This fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon should age effortlessly for 30 or more years." Wine Advocate #120, Dec 1998
Provenance: The Calistoga Cache
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $190
