2011 Darioush Signature Merlot * Napa Valley

Darioush Merlot’s depth of aromatic complexity is first and foremost a function of our estate vineyards and meticulous farming practices. Predominantly sourced from our 28-acre estate in the Oak Knoll appellation in southern Napa Valley, with smaller portions from Mt. Veeder, the soils and microclimates naturally restrict, concentrate and ripen this vigorous Bordeaux varietal.

Tasting Notes:

The wine is brimming with vibrant dark fruits, plum and blackberry, with delightful aromas of savory herbs, black tea and allspice. Bittersweet cocoa and hazelnut spices from barrel aging along with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc all add lushness, complexity and texture to the final blend.
