Altagracia 2018 Eisele Vineyard


The 2018 Altagracia Cabernet Sauvignon unfolds with a nose of intense black fruit, wild blueberries, and fresh black currants with a whiff of dried violets and tobacco. The mouthfeel is ample but firm with mineral notes of volcanic rock, forest humus, and hints of dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine shows great depth thanks to an extended maceration, with a refined texture of tight-knit tannins supporting the energetic black and blue fruits. As the wine opens, layers of floral notes, peppercorn, and cardamom add to the complexity. The long finish lingers with a touch of licorice. This is a very pure and elegant Altagracia.

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, complete 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.
