Darioush Caravan 2014
Winemaker Notes :
A classically-styled round, supple and sleek red blend – 2014 Caravan is the first vintage to highlight higher proportions of Merlot. The resulting profile is ripe and decadent with palate-pleasing notes of juicy plum, raspberry and flourless chocolate cake. Cabernet Sauvignon, the lion’s share of the blend, adds layers of complexity and an ideal balance between sweet and savory elements. It’s supple yet firm and polished tannin is complemented by dark, spicy notes of black currant and cinnamon; Caravan has a youthful energy that would reward several years of aging.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine EnthusiastThis blends a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller amounts of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It delivers plenty of lush layered black-currant and black-cherry flavors around softened tannin and sweet vanilla oak.
