2014 EISELE “ALTAGRACIA” CABERNET SAUVIGNON
What’s the greatest First Growth Bordeaux house that you can think of? Many would argue it’s Chateau Latour… In 2013 Chateau Latour purchased Araujo Estate, which they renamed simply as the vineyard name, Eisele Vineyard. In doing so, they became the only First Growth Bordeaux property to purchase a Napa Valley Cult-Winery. Recognized for superior and fascinating qualities, Eisele Vineyard fruit dates back to the 1800’s… It’s also been a source for Joseph Phelps and Ridge and is undoubtably one of the most iconic vineyards in Napa Valley. With Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon now fetching First Growth Bordeaux prices, Altagracia, which has always been the second wine of Araujo is still an exceptional value, at just a fraction of the cost of the Eisele Estate Cab.
Located on the Eastern edge of Calistoga, at the base of the Palisades, the 2014 Altagracia is a massive wine, generously giving up beautiful layers of dark fruits and showering your taste buds in mineral laced blackberries, creme de cassis, mocha and dark chocolates. This is an unforgettable wine that will literally make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you taste it… And, it already earned 96 points from James Suckling, so you won’t want to wait too long to secure a case.
