99 points, “Eisele Vineyard's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is without question one of the wines of the vintage.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous
The 45th vintage of the Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is simply monumental. Already a Napa Valley legend, this the 2015 expression of this wine blew the critics away. A rambunctious and explosive mix of cherries, blackcurrants, blackberries, raspberries, rose petals, lavender, Christmas spices, sandalwood, graphite, herbs on a smoky barbeque and leathery tobacco; this is one of those stop you in your tracks wines.
The Eisele Vineyard in northeast Napa Valley was first planted in the 1880s, making the idea of this being New World slightly strange. Over the years the grapes have been vinified by some of the region’s top names, including Ridge and Joseph Phelps. The vineyard was taken over by the Araujo family, who moved to organic farming, and then two years later to a biodynamic approach. It was then bought by François and François-Henri Pinault's Artemis Group, who also own Château Latour, Clos du Tart and the auction house Christie’s, not to mention being controlling shareholders of Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and Stella McCartney. This shows what a fashionable and sought-after property this is. Now the wines are available, grown, produced and bottled at the Eisele Vineyard in Calistoga.£86.67 per 100.00ml
