Not one, but two, 99-point reviews gushed over this wine's "firm, chewy tannins framing a deep core of dark fruit" and "incredibly intense nose of dark chocolate, warm cassis, baked plums, and Morello cherries."
When the greatest vineyards—the “grand crus”—of California are someday codified, there’s no doubt that Napa’s Eisele Vineyard will rank at or near the top of the pyramid. First planted in the 1880s, in the shadow of Napa’s Palisades Mountains, this historic site is not merely one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in California, but the world. Since the first Eisele Cabernet was released in 1971, the accolades have poured in year after year. CCOF- and Demeter-certified organic and biodynamic farming practices ensure that this legacy vineyard will continue to produce some of the purest, most profound Cabernet anywhere!
A relatively cool vintage produced what the Wine Spectator called a “benchmark” wine in 2018. Not one, but two, 99-point reviews gushed over its “firm, chewy tannins framing a deep core of dark fruit” and “incredibly intense nose of dark chocolate, warm cassis, baked plums, and Morello cherries.” At this level, Cabernet simply does not get more graceful, complex, and age-worthy. 20+ years of graceful evolution is not at all out of the question—it’s one of Napa’s time-honored greats, plain and simple!
