Araujo Estate Altagracia Red Wine 2000
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Altagracia is a 900-case blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. An elegant, medium-weight Bordeaux-like red with good structure and grip, it offers aromas of tobacco, loamy soil, sweet licorice, and red as well as black fruits. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. The selection for this offering is not made in the vineyard, but rather in May, immediately before bottling.
