2009 Darioush Signature Chardonnay * Napa Valley

Vintage after vintage, the consistently cool climates of Darioush’s Southern Napa Valley estates, and the historically-renowned Chardonnay vineyards of Hudson Ranch, Las Amigas and Muir, conspire to produce wines with character, complexity and classicism. Seamlessly integrated layers of ripe stone fruits, vibrant citrus and mineral tones maintain precision and delicacy, both hallmarks of the Darioush style. Signature Chardonnay offers classic richness paired with uncommon flavor density— promising further evolution over time.

Tasting Notes:

The 2009 season, defined by cool, consistent weather, was impeccable for developing Chardonnay’s full potential to be bright, concentrated and expansive. Vibrant key lime, orange blossom and honeysuckle aromas predominate. Upon release, the wine is blessed with an exceptionally graceful and persistent mouthfeel defined by Fuji apple and white peach. Youthful, with a firm mineral structure, the wine shows delicacy and complexity in the finish with notes of hazelnut oil, chalk, and creamy vanilla bean.
