Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The third of three superlative vintages in this decade, the 2014 exhibits remarkable balance and freshness lent by the long, temperate growing season overall, and furthered by our cool, marine-influenced Southern Napa vineyard sites. Showing exuberance and plushness on the palate, 2014 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon’s power stroke is its density of fruit and delineated character lent by our rugged Mount Veeder site. Impressive on entry, the wine is brimming with dark fruits— black cherry, savory blueberry and cola are wrapped in an earthy ribbon of bittersweet cocoa, espresso and hints of vanilla. The palate is gorgeously textured and lively, revealing sweet herbal notes of anise, dried sage and tobacco. Skillful blending of Bordeaux varieties imparts this Cabernet Sauvignon with a measure of restraint, intended to reward long term aging.

Wine EnthusiastFrom the producer's estate vineyard on Mount Veeder, this is a thick, concentrated wine of tremendous flavor. Rich black fruit dominates around an orbit of sweet tobacco, dark chocolate and crayon wax, with just a touch of reduction nipping at the finish. This is a full and robustly powerful wine.
