Wine Critic Reviews:

The saturated purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard offers an attractive nose of black fruits intermixed with toast, minerals, subtle tar, and wood smoke. Full-bodied, with impressive purity, a multi-layered mid-palate and finish, it is an expressive, pure, powerful, and large-boned wine.

Sokolin 1996 Araujo Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes:

On some days, a touch of Burgundian charm is just what the doctor ordered. When the thirst hits you, few producers can top a good Richebourg. It's a deeply layered, multi-dimensional wine, one that evolves as the night progresses, as though animated by the rising moon.

On the nose, you encounter a mouth-watering bouquet of wild cherries and blueberries, along with ginger, spice, cigar box traces, cracked pepper, smoke, vanilla, and many more subtle notes. On the palate, the wine is beautifully balanced, with a potent fruity presence and plenty of secondary characteristics, the most prominent being truffle and leather.

The wine is a shapeshifter, adopting new subtleties and attributes with every new sip or sniff. It's an adventure that keeps providing new, exciting twists and turns, and one that will keep your friends and guests amused to no end. The finish is lengthy, with a noticeable spice influence near the tail end. Delicious!

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
Type of Wine California Red: Whether it's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah or Zinfandel, Californian red wine producers have a lovely habit of taking a varietal and expressing its essence in a unique, never before seen way. From Napa Valley to the regions south of Los Angeles, there's a red for everyone - and it's never too late to start exploring.
