Late Harvest Shahpar
2019 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 energy, structure, and restraint; our flagship wine rewards with extraordinary depth and poise.
“...Rich, full-bodied, and mouth-filling, it has ripe, polished tannins, terrific overall balance, and a great finish."

2019: the vintage of the decade for Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon. In its evolution, Director of Winemaking Hope Goldie has brought further refinement, concentration and freshness to the estate’s flagship wine, without sacrificing any of the substance and pleasure of previous vintages. Mount Veeder features prominently in the aromatic complexity and structure of the wine—seamless and sleek, with cocoa, black tea, espresso, flint, and sage all contributing layers of complexity wrapped around a dense, youthful core of cassis and dark brambly fruit. With an hour of decanting or a few years of cellaring, this wine will reward both collectors and enthusiasts.
