||2004 Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon * Napa Valley
The Napa Valley is renowned for producing some of the world’s most inspiring—and collectible—Cabernet Sauvignons. The 2004 Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Napa Valley vintage; ripe, lush and profoundly concentrated, yet epitomizing the stylistic profile and poise we value so highly.

Naturally smaller yields and a warmer than average season conspired to produce berries with remarkable saturation and richness, while our more moderate-climate estate vineyards ensured the finished wine’s fully-developed complexity and nuance are not lost beneath extravagant ripeness.
Alluring floral and licorice aromatics combine with the sweet scent of crushed blackberries to introduce this seriously sexy wine. Finely-knit tannins support a rich, full-bodied mid-palate of crème de cassis, European dark chocolate, espresso, earth and exotic allspice. Though best decanted in its youth, this sophisticated beauty will age gracefully for the next decade.
