2016 Altagracia Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winery:

"Altagracia, named after Bart Araujo’s grandmother, is a Bordeaux-style blend vinified in the same manner as the Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. It is essentially the expression of the Eastern parcels of the Eisele Vineyard, completed with fruit sourced from other Napa Valley vineyards where we hold long-term grape contracts and which are farmed to our specifications. This Napa Valley Proprietary Red, while very ageable, is readily enjoyable in its youth.

The 2016 vintage is emblematic of the eastern side of Eisele Vineyard. The nose opens on roses petals, santal and dark cherry, followed with blackberry typical of the volcanic hillsides and a hint of liquorice and tobacco. The mouthfeel is generous and ample, the tannins are sweet and racy, the finish voluptuous, elegant and refined, accentuated by dark and earthy aromas. There is something noble revealed by this wine; we find it an enduring example of harmonious intentions – between vines and soil, between farmer and season, a rare alliance delivering the spirit of Eisele Vineyard to the 2016 vintage."
