2011 Darioush Signature Cabernet Franc * Napa Valley

The unique terroir of our rocky, higher elevation Mount Veeder estate combines a cool marine influenced climate with exceptional sun exposure to naturally develop the distinct and concentrated flavors of earth, spice and blueberry that are native to innately Cabernet Franc. This classic Bordeaux varietal possesses great power and poise, and contributes great intensity of flavor and earth-oriented elements to our Signature Cabernet Sauvignon each year.

Tasting Notes:

Earth-driven, with plenty of sweet black fruits, the 2011 Signature Cabernet Franc is described by winemaker Steve Devitt as “the sleeper of the vintage.” A bouquet of spiced chai and herbs de Provence overlays plush flavors of blueberry, fig and black currant with notes of cigar box and smoke. A gorgeously textured finish reveals notes of graphite and dusty chocolate.
