2005 Darioush Signature Chardonnay * Napa Valley

Two thousand five was the superlative vintage we dream of. Our Chardonnay fruit was nothing short of extraordinary, yielding wines of exceptional focus, style and intensity, all qualities we treasure highly. With a brilliant golden hue and come-hither aromatics of succulent Fuji apple, ripe fig and lemon meringue, the 2005 Darioush Signature Chardonnay is simply captivating.

With a brilliant golden hue and come-hither aromatics of succulent Fuji apple, ripe fig and lemon meringue, the 2005 Darioush Signature Chardonnay is simply captivating. Crisp flavors of nectarine, Asian pear and stone fruits are layered with nuances of delicate minerals and flint, adding intrigue and dimension. Though rich and powerful in structure, a bright citrus acidity keeps this wine refreshing and lively on the palate. A gracefully styled finish—with notes of toasted hazelnuts and crème brulée courtesy of sur-lies aging for 11 months in Burgundian oak—is what Chardonnay lovers live for.
