2012 Duel Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon

Grown in two distinct blocks on the Darioush estate in Napa Valley and Oak Knoll, Duel is the idyllic marriage of two distinguished varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This unique blend combines the deeply satisfying fruit and earthy minerality of Cabernet Sauvignon with the zesty spice and fresh berry fruits inherent to Darioush Shiraz.

Tasting notes

Compelling for both its power and intrigue, 2012 Duel features luscious and spicy Shiraz cradled by rich, velvety Cabernet Sauvignon.

This predominantly Shiraz based blend offers a concentrated core of blackberry liqueur with savory hints of black pepper and bacon, polished by notes of chocolate truffle, clove and cinnamon-spices.
