2016 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The hallmark of Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is its seamlessness, the result of decades of meticulous vineyard management of our cooler climate, Southern Napa Valley sites. Our estate vineyards in the Mount Veeder and Napa Valley AVAs have hit their stride, producing fruit with splendid concentration, compelling freshness, and graceful complexity. The final composition strikes a tightrope balance of youthful energy, structure, and restraint; our flagship wine rewards with extraordinary depth and poise.
"2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a total rock star on the nose, cranking out beautifully boisterous notes of crème de cassis, preserved plums, warm blueberries... a solid frame of super ripe, finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing very long and very spicy."

Exceptional density and composure, with brilliant focus, are hallmarks of the 2016 vintage. With a vibrant array of dark fruits and intriguing spices. Signature Cabernet Sauvignon unfolds with layer upon layer of juicy blackberry, wild blueberry, cedar and lead pencil with savory notes of cured bacon, sage and star anise. Texturally complex, with plenty of poignancy and largesse, 2016 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine to reward the most patient of collectors.
