2016 Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 98

The best wine in modern times for the legendary Eisele Vineyard, this hits the mark the moment you initially sense it in your glass. The nose grabs you with its leafy, floral, tobacco, spice and fruit filled character. Rich and sensuous, the wine has polish and volume coupled with freshness and purity of fruit. This is a fabulous style and expression of California Cabernet Sauvignon that will provide pleasure for at least 25 years or more. 98 Points

2015 Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 96

Vibrant, yet fleshy, full, but refined, voluminous, the wine has depth and silky tannins. On the nose, you find smoke, earth, cigar box and ripe, dark plums, black cherry and blackberry. The finish is all about is sensuous textures and the bolt of dark chocolate covered, juicy, polished, sexy dark, red fruits. It's interesting to note that even though the wine is already expressing itself, you can easily hold this for 20 years for future development. 96 Points

2014 Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon  (Napa Valley) 94

Over the past few years, the wine has started filling out, adding more flesh and fruit. Along the wine, the has also taken on additional polish to the tannins and nuances of smoke, earth, dark red fruits and forest leaf notes. You can already enjoy this beauty now, while waiting for the bigger, more powerful 2015 and 2016 to develop. 94 Points

Cedar and dark berries, hints of licorice and vanilla bean are out in front. The wine is tannic,masculine and semi strict in character. There is good fruit in the middle here, but it takes effort and time to find it. Perhaps time in the cellar will help flesh out the wine, adding more of its typical, soft, lush personality. 92 Points

Fresh, silky, vibrant and exciting, the wine offers serious levels of concentration with a spine of dark chocolate and lush, juicy, perfectly ripe, blackberries, plums and a hint of blue fruit.

Deep in color, with a dark chocolate, earthy, espresso, truffle driven nose. On the palate, the wine is pure silk and sensuality. It must be the feminine touch of the new winemaker, Helene Mingot. The finish is long, remaining with you for at least 50 seconds. 98 Points
