2013 Araujo Estate 'Altagracia' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

The 2013 Altagracia is simply not to be missed. Parker calls it "One of the finest Altagracias I've tasted to date, the color is saturated ruby/purple, much darker than the 2012 and…also more concentrated and promising. The wine is a heck of a second wine, but does require some patience. For now, deep, rich blackcurrant and blackberry fruit with floral notes (white flowers?), medium to full body and sweet tannin are all present in this relatively larger-scaled Altagracia than we've seen in the past." – The Wine Advocate

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.
