Araujo 2009 - Estate Eisele Vineyard Syrah 1.5 L
Region: Napa Valley
Size: 1.5 L
Araujo Estate is a 38-acre vineyard in northeast Napa Valley, east of Calistoga. It was established in 1990 when Bart and Daphne Araujo bought the historic vineyard from Milt and Barbara Eisele, who planted the vines in the 1960s. For nearly 40 years the Eisele Vineyard has been known as one of the valley’s great vineyards, consistently producing outstanding wines. The Araujos completed many renovation projects since they acquired the estate, and planted such varietals as Petit Verdot, Syrah, Sangiovese, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. Nevertheless the estate’s signature wine is its highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2013 the Araujos sold the estate to the owners of Chateau Latour.
