Late Harvest Shahpar
2011 Signature Merlot, Napa Valley
Depth of flavor and aromatic complexity define Darioush Signature Merlot. Predominantly sourced from our Oak Knoll estate acreage in southern Napa Valley, with smaller portions from Mount Veeder, the soils and microclimates naturally restrict, concentrate and ripen this vigorous Bordeaux varietal.
The wine is brimming with vibrant dark fruits, plum and blackberry, with delightful aromas of savory herbs, black tea and allspice.
Bittersweet cocoa and hazelnut spices from barrel aging along with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc all add lushness, complexity and texture to the final blend.
