Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Bright red-ruby. Nobler on the nose than the Altagracia, displaying scents of currant, licorice and tobacco lifted by a sexy floral topnote. Broad and supple in the mouth, but with lovely definition and power to the flavors of plum, currant, brown spices and brown sugar.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) To produce the estate's flagship wine, three quarters of the 38-acre Eisele Vineyard ​is dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon and its companion varieties, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The resulting wine is an intense expression of the Eisele Vineyard terroir, exhibiting characteristic flavors of cassis, blackberry, cedar and chocolate, with a lingering mineral finish. Cabernets from the Eisele Vineyard are highly regarded for their complexity, concentration, weight without heaviness, silky texture and ability to age for decades.

    This wine was drinking beautifully - balance of full bright fruit with wood notes of light to medium cigar box. Full mouthfeel with long deep cherry finish.
