Details

The 2016 vintage is emblematic of the eastern side of Eisele Vineyard. The nose opens on roses petals, santal and dark cherry, followed with blackberry typical of the volcanic hillsides and a hint of liquorice and tobacco. The mouthfeel is generous and ample, the tannins are sweet and racy, the finish voluptuous, elegant and refined, accentuated by dark and earthy aromas.

The Altagracia is produced almost exclusively from estate fruit this year and was bottled at the end of June 2018. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia comes bursting forth with vivacious black cherries, blackberries, wild blueberries and cassis notes with touches of cinnamon stick, cloves, forest floor, violets and dusty earth with a waft of violets. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with loads of iron and mineral accents, finishing long and perfumed.

The beautiful core marries creamy, warm plum fruit with a layers of loam, yet stays open and accessible in feel, ending with a swath of tobacco on the finish. Drink now through 2027.
