|91 RP - The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Cabernet Franc and the remainder Petit Verdot is from a difficult vintage. It displays Margaux-like elegance and weight and possesses a dense ruby/purple color a sweet perfume of acacia flowers black currants licorice minerals and subtle wood medium body honeyed fruit and a long velvety-textured finish. This is a wine of exceptional finesse and grace. It was produced from an extremely tiny crop of only one cluster of grapes per shoot.
|92 WS - Complete and very complex, exhibiting rich plum and red currant flavors, with touches of anise, sage, herb and mineral. Plush, focused aftertaste.
