In the late 1990’s, while the focus was on northern Napa Valley, Darioush and Winemaker Steve Devitt focused intently on site selection and cooler, maritime-influenced micro climates of Southern Napa Valley and atop Mount Veeder. Together, they saw the potential of Bordeaux varieties grown from these unique, more temperate sites in crafting balanced wines with deep character, grace, complexity, and poise. Early vintages of the flagship release, Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon were applauded by critics, capturing a coveted spot on Wine Spectator’s top 100 list and continue to garner praise for their style and distinction. The hallmark of Darioush is its seamlessness, the result of decades of meticulous vineyard management of the cooler climate, Southern Napa Valley sites. Darioush estate vineyards in the Mount Veeder and Napa Valley AVA’s have hit their stride, producing fruit with splendid concentration, compelling freshness, and graceful complexity. The final composition strikes a tightrope balance of youthful energy, structure, and restraint; the flagship wine rewards with extraordinary depth and poise.

Deep purple black colored, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals notions of warm cassis, blueberry preserves and boysenberries with touches of cedar chest, cherry cola and spice cake. Full-bodied, the palate has a firm, grainy texture and a lively line carrying the spicy black berry preserves flavors to a nice long finish.
