2007 Darioush Signature Cabernet Franc * Napa Valley

Grown from our cool vineyard sites in southern Napa Valley, Cabernet Franc develops slowly to reveal vibrant dark fruits, earth and spice. This classic Bordeaux varietal attributes much intensity of fruit and dark, earthy components to our final blend of Signature Cabernet Sauvignon each year. On its own, Cabernet Franc possesses great power with poise.

Tasting Notes:

Enticing aromas of ripe blueberry, acai and lavender introduce the delightful 2007 Signature Cabernet Franc. A touch of Merlot adds complexity to the full-bodied wine. The round palate is consumed by rich, juicy fruits— chocolate covered raspberry and plums, balanced by earthy components— forest floor, spring cedar and sweet anise. Savory rosemary, ground cloves and graphite are persistent on the long finish.
