2019 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

Drawing inspiration from a refined Left-Bank Bordeaux blend, 2019 Caravan commands attention with a core of mouthwatering raspberry and black plum fruit while baking spices of cinnamon and nutmeg swirl on the palate.

Cabernet Sauvignon leads the way with its plush, velvety texture while Merlot and Cabernet Franc add savory top notes of bay leaf, hawthorn, and sandalwood. A flourish of rich, round fruits sweep across the midpalate, then culminate in an aromatic finish accentuated by dark chocolate reminiscent of a fine dusting of cocoa powder.

"This powerful, full-bodied yet velvety wine boasts complex aromatics…cinnamon, cedar and vanilla followed by black currants, blueberries and dark chocolate on the palate..."
