EISELE CABERNET SAUVIGNON "ALTAGRACIA", CALISTOGA NAPA VALLEY 2014
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
The wines from the extremely hot drought year, 2014, were just bottled prior to my visit. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia is suppressed in the aromatics, which is due to recent bottling, but exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, outstanding ripeness, elegance and loads of blackcurrant fruit intermixed with dusty/loamy soil scents and spice. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.
NVWE Notes: Now made entirely from “estate” vineyard fruit, Eisele’s alternate Cab is a classy and age-worthy wine. The slightly brooding aromas are a focused mix of black and red currant, Italian Maraschino cherry, mulberry, blueberry, dry rose, cedar, clove, nutmeg, sandalwood, leather and graphite. On the palate it displays a firm structure, but captures the attention with a wave of black cherry, black raspberry, grilled black fig, licorice root and graphite flavors. The finish is racy and extremely long, and as the wine airs all of the elements promised in the nose are realized. Probably five years from its peak, it will already prove delicious with steaks, dark roasts or sauced meats. 1900 cases produced.
