International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($85; cabernet sauvignon with 14% each merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot) Good ruby-red. Fresh, expressive aromas of currant, licorice, mocha and charred oak. Fat, sweet, layered and rich, with supple flavors of dark raspberry and brown spices. Not a particularly fruity style, but finishes ripe and quite persistent. This is all from estate fruit; in fact, Araujo continues to sell off lesser stuff that's not good enough for this second wine.

Everything is about quality, as evidenced by Araujo's second wine, the 2002 Altagracia. A selection of 650 cases that is about two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and equal parts (about 14% each) Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, this is one heck of a second wine. A beautifully fragrant nose of cedar wood, flowers, pepper, and spice box along with the telltale red and black fruit soars from the glass. On a much quicker evolutionary track than the Eisele Estate Cabernet, it is supple-textured as well as loaded with fruit and complexity. Already accessible, it possesses the balance and depth to evolve for 10-12 years. A sleeper selection, it is by no means a second wine in the pejorative sense of the word.
