Caravan

2017 Caravan

Caravan shares the pedigree of Darioush’s Signature wines, but displays more ripe, saturated fruit with an elegantly textured finish. Caravan is anchored in Cabernet Sauvignon with lesser amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and/or Malbec and Petit Verdot added for depth and complexity of flavor.

Tasting notes

A classically-styled round, supple and sleek red blend – 2017 Caravan highlights Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Petit Verdot and Merlot.

Ripe and decadent with palate-pleasing notes of juicy plum, raspberry, and flourless chocolate cake, 2017 Caravan is supple yet firm with polished tannin complemented by dark, spicy notes of black currant and cinnamon. Cabernet Sauvignon, the lion’s share of the blend, adds layers of complexity and an ideal balance between sweet and savory elements. Caravan has a youthful energy that would reward several years of aging.
