ARAUJO ESTATE WINES CABERNET SAUVIGNON EISELE VINEYARD 2005 NAPA VALLEY. U. 6 X BN. A NOSE OF BLACK RASPBERRIES INTERWOVEN WITH FLORAL NOTES OF BLACKCURRANTS AND SPICE JUMP FROM THE GLASS OF THIS DENSE RUBY/PLUM/PURPLE WINE. THIS FAMOUS VINEYARD AT THE NORTHERN END OF NAPA VALLEY, WHICH IN THIS ERA WAS OWNED BY BART AND DAPHNE ARAUJO (TODAY OWNED BY FRANÇOIS PINAULT, THE PROPRIETOR OF CHÂTEAU LATOUR), CAN CERTAINLY MAKE THE ARGUMENT THAT IT’S ONE OF THE FIRST GROWTHS OF NAPA VALLEY. SWEET, VELVETY TANNIN, MEDIUM TO FULL BODY, AND EXTRAORDINARY COMPLEXITY AND ELEGANCE CHARACTERIZE THIS WINE, WHICH IS SEAMLESS AND DRINKING BEAUTIFULLY. 92 WS 96 WA 6 BTS. PER LOT $1,700 - $2,100
