2008 Darioush Signature Chardonnay * Napa Valley

Fruit sourced from Darioush’s cool vineyard sites in Napa Valley, Oak Knoll and Carneros supports slow, even ripening which results in a wine that balances light acidity and gorgeously textured fruit. Cool climates with very little rainfall in 2008 resulted in our lowest Chardonnay yield this decade— an ideal balance for a wine that is celebrated for its distinctive combination of ripeness, texture and fruit intensity.

Tasting Notes:

Exuberant aromas of citrus blossom, white nectarine and lemon peel soar from the glass, introducing the statuesque 2008 Signature Chardonnay. Anchored by a crisp core of white peach and Fuji apple, copious flavors of poached pear, mango and orange zest play on the palate. An exceptionally graceful finish hints at toasted hazelnut, vanilla and honey.
