Araujo Estate Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

$165

...This nose is far more expressive than the Dalla Valle, macerated red cherries, sloe, coconut, vanilla and a touch of chalk dust. Nice lift. Good definition. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, nice balanced, this seems to have coalesced since I last had this. Blackberry, blueberry, crushed violets, lovely sense of vibrancy towards the silky finish. Great length. Excellent. Tasted May 2009. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Tasted along side of the '98 Insignia and '97 Dalla Valle. Congrats to the Araujo, the winner! Jammy dark fruit structure starting to weaken (as was the case with all three). The nose was complex w/ dark fruits, licorice and herbal notes.

Very pretty classic California cabernet, pure fruit with just a touch of pyrazines with air bringing complexity, it could use a little more structure but is otherwise in a very good place.
