Araujo Estate Description

Altagracia is an estate cabernet made from selected Eisele Vineyard grapes, often from younger vines. As our second estate cabernet, it stands on its own in purity, style and finesse. Notes Francoise: Exuberant flavors of red cherry,raspberry and red currants, spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and laced with juicy tannins, give this wine great body and personality. Expressive and approachable, it is a fine wine that can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from being cellared for several years.

Wine Advocate: 90 Points

The 1999 Altagracia, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee from estate vineyards, is the debut vintage. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, and plump, sweet, pure, black currant fruit intermixed with mineral and licorice notes. This delicious Cabernet is on a faster revolutionary track than its more profound sibling, the celebrated Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The 1999 Altagracia will drink well for 7-12 years.

Wine Spectator: 90 Points

An elegant, sophisticated wine that relies on finesse and flavor, with creamy mocha-laced currant and black cherry fruit. Holds its flavor and focus through a long, complex finish. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2004 through 2010
