K&L Notes

First bottled in the 1999 vintage, the Altagracia is Araujo's second Cabernet, usually made from the estate's younger vines as well as some older vine lots that don't fit into the flavor profile of the "Eisele," and, for the first time, the 2008 also includes fruit sourced from some other premium Napa Valley vineyards. Vinified in the same fashion as the first wine, this was aged in 100% new French oak for 23 months and is quite forward. Its nose is sweet and warming--it smells like fresh blueberry pie and a fresh cup of coffee. Its mouthcoating texture delivers blueberry, cassis, graphite and coffee flavors framed by well-integrated tannins and fleshed out by a gentle acidity.
