2010 Darioush Signature Merlot * Napa Valley

The unique terroir of our rocky, higher-elevation Mt Veeder estate combines a cooler marine influence and exceptional sun exposure to naturally concentrate, ripen and reduce yields of this vigorous Bordeaux varietal—providing Merlot fruit with greater depth, texture and aromatic complexity.

Tasting Notes:

Limited by Mother Nature, our 2010 Signature Merlot is exceptionally well balanced and rewardingly complex. Floral aromas of lavender and violet join clove, black tea and incense on the vibrant, inviting nose. At its core are warm, ripe flavors of dark plum, Black Mission fig and blueberry, laced with enriching hints of vanilla, cola and cassis. Plush and rich yet with plenty of structure, this is a wine for immediate enjoyment or longer term aging.
