2008 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon | Rated 92



Tasting Notes, June 15 2011

"Lots going on in this wine with tobacco, ripe fruit, and chocolate character. Full and velvety, with a point of alcohol at the finish. But it should come together nicely with a year or two of bottle age." -- James Suckling

Darioush 2009 Signature Viognier, Napa Valley         
"Very refreshing, showing a lip-smacking acidity that gives a fresh, vibrant feel to the apricot, peach, nectarine and citrus flavors.  Wonderful purity and persistence mark the finish, punctuated by a terrific sleekness.--M.W."

"The winery's top bottling, and this vintage recalls the tremendous 2000.  Tastes important right off the bat, althought it's obviously young and unintegrated.  New, smokky oak dominates, with themes of ripe, concentrated blackberries and cassis, but the tannins are hard as nails.  Wants and needs time.  Best well after 2013, and should develop for years beyond.  Cellar Selection.--S.H."

2007 Signature Merlot | Rated 90

"Rich and extracted in sweet cherry and blackberry tart filling, with sweet notes of caramelized oak.  A lush, rewarding Merlot perfect for drinking now and over the next several years with its natural partner, a fine grilled steak.--S.H."
