2013 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Inspired by the power and grace exhibited in the great wines of Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon from Darioush’s cooler-climate, southern Napa Valley vineyards exhibit extraordinary depth, character and poise. Now in their second decade, these estate vineyards in the Mount Veeder, Napa Valley and Oak Knoll AVA’s have hit their stride, producing fruit with splendid concentration and power, compelling freshness and graceful complexity. The textbook 2013 vintage allowed Winemaker Steve Devitt to weave together a Cabernet Sauvignon that balances highly aromatic, well-delineated Mount Veeder fruit with saturated flavors, polish and poise lent by our valley floor estates.

Tasting notes

Rated 93 | “A showcase of the vintage and varietal, this is a luxuriously thick and decadent wine, integrated in tannin and oak, with a length on the palate...” Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Generous and concentrated on the palate, this dynamic wine delivers its signature of alluring, savory blueberry and blackberry fruit, freshly ground espresso and aromas of anise, dried sage and cigar-box. A satisfyingly persistent finish of dark fruits unfolds to reveal notes of graphite, toasted hazelnut and seamless, finely-knit tannins.
