The winter of 2017 brought an end to a drought that had persisted for five years. However, fewer
storms in the second half of the rainy season resulted in a normal bud break. Canopy growth was
impressive as the vines utilized the available water and moderate April temperatures. A mild Spring
saw the latest bloom since 2012. Vigor was slowed down with a first heat wave in June, which also
resulted in reduced berry size across the ranch. The ensuing summer was warmer than usual, and
veraison started slowly at the beginning of August. The maturation of the fruit followed the intense
rhythm of Summer heat in a ‘stop and go’ pattern, resulting in fruit with great concentration and
freshness. Precise sorting was employed in the cellar, so that only berries in perfect condition would
reach the vats. The small berries along with uncompromising selection meant yields were reduced by
35% compared to 2016.
The fruit was picked between September 21st and October 6

The Eisele Vineyard grapes are certified ‘Organic’ by CCOF and ‘Biodynamic’ by Demeter.

The 2017 Eisele Cabernet is an iron fist in a velvet glove. Very small berries were the signature of the 2017 vintage. It displays a deep dark garnet robe suggesting a great core of rich, spicy fruit. The nose opens on intense floral notes of violet and fresh blue fruit typical of the Eisele Vineyard terroir, with a subtle scent of roasted meat jus. With time it delivers ripe Moreau cherries and blond tobacco leaves. The mouthfeel is fresh, precise and deliciously savory, showing great concentration. The tannins are very fine and tightly knit with a coconut powder feel accompanied by Darjeeling tea notes. Layers of dark fruits linger in the long finish. Great aging potential.
