2020 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

Tasting Notes

2020 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon opens with attractive floral aromas that make way for an array of brambly fruit flavors on entry—wild blackberry, cherry, cassis and boysenberry.

While the challenges of the 2020 growing season were atypical, our year-round efforts in the vineyard led by Winemaker Hope Goldie resulted in a Cabernet Sauvignon with remarkable stature and integrity, albeit limited yield. A flourish of savory notes abound— dried Sage leaf, herbal incense, spiced chai, and cacao expand on the mid-palate, that is supported by finely-knit tannins. This is lively wine with impressive power—2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is built to age.

"Heady floral, spicy, and cedary aromas are the first impression of this big wine before deep black fruits hit the palate and the impressive tannic grip takes hold. Tempting cinnamon, cocoa and baked blueberry notes linger long on the finish. Best from 2028–2038."
