With alll the earmarks of a potentially perfect wine it should also be a wine that will be approachable young, but certainly last for 35+ years. With one of the greatest terroirs in all of California, Eisele continues to deliver world-class wines of first-growth quality. The Eisele vineyard legacy is now brilliantly stewarded and owned by a Bordeaux first-growth proprietor himself, François Pinault, and the stalwart Château Latour. Robert Parker’s 100 point notes are as follows:

“Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon charges from the gate with exuberant red and black cherries notes, black currants and mulberries with a beautiful roses and lavender perfume, plus hints of sandalwood and cinnamon stick. Full-bodied, concentrated and downright explosive in the mouth, it is still wearing loads of gorgeous puppy-fat fruit flavors, offering suggestions of the complex, multilayered blockbuster that it will emerge into. The structure deserves its own mention: wonderful, seamless freshness and oh-so-fine, pixelated tannins, with an extraordinary persistence of fruit and mineral nuances. Wow.” Drink 2019-2049
