Lot #2075. Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 1991

Description: Consists of 1 Double Magnum, 3L
Score: 95 RP.
"I had inserted this wine in a blind tasting. I did not know where it would appear, but I knew it would be in the tasting, and I was able to pick it out when it was served. However, the rest of the tasters thought it was a large-scaled Bordeaux from the Medoc. This magnificent California Cabernet offers that exciting blend of power and elegance. The opaque purple color is followed by copious quantities of sweet, mineral, licorice, floral-laden, blackcurrant fruit, full body, exceptional purity, good underlying, well-integrated acidity and tannin, and a whoppingly long finish. Typical of many top California wines, it combines magnificent richness and ripeness with a sense of gracefulness and complexity." Wine Advocate, Feb 1997
Provenance: The Calistoga Cache
