2011 Signature Merlot, Napa Valley

Depth of flavor and aromatic complexity define Darioush Signature Merlot. Predominantly sourced from our Oak Knoll estate acreage in southern Napa Valley, with smaller portions from Mount Veeder, the soils and microclimates naturally restrict, concentrate and ripen this vigorous Bordeaux varietal.
