Dena's birthday celebration #1 at Bolt. This wine continues to prove the old adage of "producer over vintage" as the Araujo's turned out a wine in this less than stellar year that is absolutely beautiful to drink right now. Filled with aromas and flavors of chocolate and dark berries with a medium to long finish. A perfect match for the great filet we ate. Probably at or near maturity but seems to have many years of great drinking ahead of it. 50+13+13+9+9=94

(Araujo Cabernet .Eisele Vineyard.) was also a nice drink, showing lots of minerals in the nose with sweet fruit of cassis, pencil and exotic nuts. The wine had good fruit for a 1998 with no sign of green and a medium body and style. It.s a great buy to drink now
