International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

(14.6% alcohol; includes 2.6% cabernet franc and 1.6% petit verdot) Good saturated ruby-red. Superripe, complex, slightly roasted nose combines black raspberry, dark chocolate, smoked meat, maple syrup, toffee, tobacco and licorice. Dense and aromatic in the mouth, with compelling sweetness and suavity of texture. Wonderfully opulent and seamless red wine. This finishes with huge but utterly fine tannins and lush, lingering flavor.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 201

Araujo's spectacular 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is a 1,700-case blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot from a vineyard tucked in the lower hillsides of northeastern Napa Valley, not far from the quaint town of Calistoga. Araujo has enjoyed an incredible string of top-notch vintages from 2001 through 2005 and again from 2008 through 2010. Extremely youthful at age ten, the 2002 is a candidate for perfection. Its dense blue/purple hue is followed by abundant aromas of cassis, incense, crushed rocks and spring flowers. Full-bodied and opulent as well as pure, rich and authoritative, with abundant but beautifully integrated tannins, this opulent, plush 2002 can be drunk now or cellared for another 20-25 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Firm, rich and concentrated, with ample tannins wrapped around a core of earth, currant and black cherry fruit. With excellent balance and depth, it serves up lots of rich, complex flavors without being heavy, offering a floral, perfumed currant edge. 1,630 cases made.

Very smooth, nice finish and tannins are almost non-existent, but lacked the nuances a perfect wine would display.

OK wine, but not aging well. Kinda like a third growth with nice nose but not enough weight and finish.

Front Man Trust Rating: 100 Tasted On: 05/10/2010

The most profound and singular wine I've had to date. I don't think I could mistake this for any other California Cabernet. Dark red brick color. The nose had complex aromas of a more mature wine, but the mouthfeel was youthful and vibrant. Extremely intense and mouthcoating flavors of spicy oak and licorice. Long finish
