The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is pure Eisele. In the cellar, the wines revealed themselves with practically no need to intervene. The secret of the vintage was to be gentle on the fruit and not overdo it. The natural concentration and depth of the vintage are combined with exquisite elegance, precision and finesse, which are hallmarks of this terroir. The 2013 Eisele Cabernet opens up on notes of dried rose petals and spices with a hint of boysenberries. On the palate, the multiple dimensions of the texture and the expression of black and blue fruit combine with a sense of extraordinary purity. The refined and tightly-knit tannins give way to a very long, deliciously mineral, almost saline finish.

Wine AdvocateBoth 2013s are clearly the finest Eisele wines made under the administration of François Pinault and his top lieutenant, Frédéric Engerer, who also runs the show at Château Latour. The utterly compelling 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage and 1,800 cases were made. The wine is off-the-charts great, with an opaque bluish/purple color to the rim, an aroma of pen ink, graphite, blackberry and blueberry fruit, a hint of licorice, camphor and incense. The wine is full-bodied, with extraordinary concentration, remarkable equilibrium and noticeable, but sweet, well-integrated tannin. This is a large-scaled Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, but flawless and with no edges. It is an amazing effort and a great achievement from this incredible terroir. Drink it over the next 30-40 years.

Wine Spectator"Designation: Collectibles" Pure and pleasantly focused, driven by a supple core of dark berry, licorice, sage, underbrush and mineral notes that stand up to the cedary oak. Ends long, deep and persistent, echoing the core flavor themes. Drink now through 2032. 1,600 cases made.
