The 2016 Cabernet from Eisele Vineyard stands out by way of harmony and precision. It is a complex cru revealing multidimensional aromas and sensations. The nose opens on notes of ripe fruit, Burlat cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant creme, and expands to a bouquet of sweet spices and tea. The mouthfeel is suave and supple, almost bewitching with class and finesse: chiseled tannins are accompanied by layers of patchouli, mineral notes, dark fruit and a hint of saltiness. This nectar is one of the purest expressions of the Eisele Vineyard terroir.
First planted to vines in the 1880s, Eisele Vineyard sits in the northeast Napa Valley, just east of Calistoga at the base of the Palisades Mountain range. Farmed organically since 1998 and biodynamically since 2000, the site has been principally dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon for the last fifty years. Beginning with the inaugural release bearing the Eisele name in 1971, this iconic vineyard has received consistent recognition for possessing one of the great terroirs of Napa Valley. The wines invariably express the exceptional depth, elegance and longevity which are hallmarks of the Eisele Vineyard.
