previous vintage 97 Points James Suckling: "Intense aromas of black fruit, cocoa powder, black olives, dried violets, tar and cigar box. Some black peppercorn, too. It’s full-bodied with firm, chalky tannins. Incredible intensity and purity of fruit with gorgeous breadth and depth. Superb, new-wave Napa red. 80% cabernet sauvignon, the rest mostly Cabernet Franc with a hit of Petit Verdot."

95+ points Robert Parker: "Deep purple-black colored, the Eisele Vineyard 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia comes bounding out of the glass with sit-up-and-beg notes of macerated black cherries, kirsch and boysenberries, giving way to fresh blackcurrants, menthol and crushed rocks with a waft of wild sage.

...2019 is the 21st release of Altagracia. While the blend has evolved over the years, the 2019 vintage is a prime example of the "new" Altagracia, now representing the Eastern blocks of Eisele Vineyard (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot). Reflecting a long and mild growing season, the wine is very refined and clearly built to age.  This famous estate tucked away in northeastern Napa Valley in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains is now fully controlled, in both a viticultural and winemaking standpoint, by Château Latour’s François Pinault and his general manager Frédéric Engerer. The new releases include their second wine, the Altagracia."
