"Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a great core of rich, spicy black fruit preserves, framed with firm, chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing earthy." 93 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WA

Eisele Vineyard is one of the greatest single vineyards in northern California. It comprises some 38 acres of warm, cobbly soils, located on an alluvial fan just east of Calistoga – protected by the Palisades Mountains to the north and cooled by westerly breezes from the Chalk Hill Gap. The well drained soils, warm days and cool nights result in low yields of thick-skinned, small, intensely flavoured berries. The estate is certified as organic by the California Certified Farmers and biodynamic by Demeter.

"Blackberry and tile aromas with tobacco and spice. Some chocolate, too. Medium to full body and firm, velvety tannins that show a juicy finish. Fine yet dusty tannins. Rich for the vintage. Delicious now or hold." 94 pts, James Suckling

"This vintage has a bit less Petit Verdot than usual, but basically remains about 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia leaps from the glass, offering bold, expressive notes of blackberry pie, Black Forest cake and warm cassis with hints of garrigue, mossy tree bark, dusty soil and black pepper plus a fragrant waft of cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a great core of rich, spicy black fruit preserves, framed with firm, chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing earthy." 93 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WA
