    September 7, 2019 - Best of the bunch in a tangle of 04 big Cal cabs (Shafer, Pride, Bressler, Dunn). This one showed more harmony and balance, less heat, and very pretty fruit. Not over the top, at least in this company.

    January 8, 2019 - This bottle was good, but didn’t show well for the price. OAky alcoholic, not enough acid. Decanted and drank over two hours with grilled steak. As I try these old Araujo wines, they have not impressed for their price point. Listen, this is delicious wine, just a disappointment for the price.

    (Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon) Deep garnet color, with a clear rim. The initially subdued nose of stones, spicy oak, chocolate, and warm alcohol opens up to reveal blackcurrant, black plum, caraway, and a hint of jalapeño. More complex on the palate, although lean in structure, with a rich mouthfeel and a long finish. Terroir: Eisele Vineyard
