"A solid Altagracia with currants, blueberries and pine and bark aromas and some sweet tobacco. Aromas that follow through on the palate to a full body with a well-framed tannin profile. Crunchy at the end. Juicy too. Needs as couple of years to come together. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Best after 2027."


94pts Jeb Dunnuck

"Coming from more hillside parcels and slightly more volcanic soils, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia checks in as a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Aged in 82% new barrels, it has a deeper ruby hue to go with a beautiful perfume of darker currants, red plums, toasted spices, new leather, and dried tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, it has plenty of classic Napa Valley fruit yet also brings beautiful balance, ripe tannins, and a great finish."

 

From the Winemaker:

Altagracia, named for Bart Araujo’s grandmother, mirrors the Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon in vinification. It represents the Eastern Eisele Vineyard parcels, supplemented with grapes from contracted Napa Valley vineyards, farmed to our standards. A Napa Valley Proprietary Red, it’s both age-worthy and approachable when young.
