Producer Notes

The mission statement reads, in part, "To produce organically grown fruit and with this fruit make a singular wine of the highest caliber and distinction." By all accounts, Bart and Daphne Araujo are succeeding magnificently. The flagship wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon from their own Eisele Vineyards, is hailed by critics and desired by consumers in every vintage. Though first planted to Zinfandel... More »

Deep almost black in color, beautiful nose of berries, cassis and leather, thick almost port like with soft well integrated tannins and a long finish, almost one minute.

Deeply colored with aromas of cocoa, scant warm minerals, caramel, and cherries. While the nose lacks complexity, the wine really expands in the mouth with enjoyable sweet chocolate and cherry flavors. Length is good but the initial pop on the palate fades quicker than expected. A user friendly Araujo Cabernet that is not really designed to be a long distance runner. Like many Cabs from this hot vintage it lacks some structure. As good as this Cabernet is, I must admit its a let down compared to the 2001, 2002, and 2003. Tasted from a half bottle. 14.6% alcohol. This wine can be enjoyed now with great relish but a cellar snooze of about six years is likely needed for the wine to reach maturity.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
