Lot #571. Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Score: 95 NM.
"Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience vertical in London. Deep garnet/black core with thin deep brick rim. Again, the nose is quite broody at first: minerals, Morello cherry and liquorice, then a touch of coffee developing. An opulent entry, more lavish than the 1994 with pure sweet black cherries, raspberry and blueberry. This ’96 has vibrant acidity, quite racy, very primal. The focus on the finish is impressive, superb balance . . . . Excellent. Tasted May 2006." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, May 2009
Provenance: The Aquamarine Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $950
