1993 Araujo Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Double Magnum - 96 Pts!
The Eisele Vineyard 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the half dozen or so candidates for wine of the vintage. I have tasted it three times out of bottle once rating it as high as 98 but never less than 96. It is a mind-boggling Cabernet Sauvignon that is remarkably well-balanced for its size and intensity. The color is an opaque purple and the nose offers up smoky chocolatey blackcurrant licorice and mineral scents. On the palate the wine reveals fabulous density concentration sweetness of fruit as well as tannin and a 30-40 second finish. Although there is a high percentage of new oak this wine has completely soaked it up a testament to its extract and concentration of fruit. While the wine displays a certain precociousness unusual for a 1993 there is plenty of tannin lurking in the finish but it is well-concealed by the wine's exceptional richness. This beauty is destined to age effortlessly for 20-25 years. RP
