Araujo Estate Altagracia Red Wine 1999
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine SpectatorAn elegant, sophisticated wine that relies on finesse and flavor, with creamy mocha-laced currant and black cherry fruit. Holds its flavor and focus through a long, complex finish. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2004 through 2010.
Wine AdvocateThe 1999 Altagracia, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee from estate vineyards, is the debut vintage. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, and plump, sweet, pure, black currant fruit intermixed with mineral and licorice notes. This delicious Cabernet is on a faster revolutionary track than its more profound sibling, the celebrated Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The 1999 Altagracia will drink well for 7-12 years.
