Late Harvest Shahpar
2011 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The quintessential offering of the Darioush estate. Reflective of Darioush's individualism and dedication to crafting a Cabernet Sauvignon that bridges Bordeaux's old world complexity and poise with Napa Valley's modern and progressive style, stature and depth.
Rated 96 | Wine Enthusiast Magazine “…this is classic Napa Valley Cabernet with an elegance at its core, that’s also seamless, complex and age-worthy. From relatively cooler sites in Oak Knoll and Mount Veeder, and a cooler year too, this vintage sings for this producer, showing balance and power in equal measure. — V.B."
Captivating aromas of anise, expresso, dried herbs and orange peel introduce the 2011 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon. Sumptuous and savory blackberry, dark cherry and fig are revealed during decanting, with notes of bittersweet cocoa, black olive and nutmeg adding intrigue and complexity. The vintage exhibits composure, with both depth of flavor and ripe, refined tannins.
