2012 Araujo Estate 'Eisele Vineyard' Syrah Napa Valley

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

Syrah was originally planted in the Eisele vineyard in 1978, at the suggestion of Joseph Phelps, and remains one of the greatest examples of California Syrah, year after year. Notes of Valrhona chocolate, black cherry, bacon, and baking spices keep things interesting through a big, rich, tannic finish.

First planted in 1880, Araujo's Eisele Vineyard in Calistoga is steeped in mythology. The vineyard is a good example of the transcendent power of a great terroir, because no matter who makes the wines, they always provide an extraordinary drinking experience. Even before Bart and Daphne Araujo purchased this gravelly, cobblestone-laden vineyard in 1989, legendary wines like the 1971 Ridge Eisele, 1974 Conn Creek Eisele, and 1975 Joseph Phelps Eisele Cabernets galvanized its position as one of the greatest sites in the Valley. Today winemaking and blending is overseen by Frédéric Engerer, who is also CEO of Château Latour. This winery is in a rarefied class: wines like Screaming Eagle, Harlan, Schrader, and Shafer are all its peers. Araujo is an absolutely essential part of any serious Napa Valley collection.
