Our estate vineyards in the Mount Veeder and Napa Valley AVA’s have hit their stride, producing a seamless composition which strikes a balance of youthful energy, structure, and restraint; our flagship wine rewards collectors and enthusiasts alike with extraordinary depth and poise.
Aromatic complexity and typicity is the hallmark of Darioush Signature Merlot. Our meticulous vineyard practices, the unique microclimates and soils from our Southern Napa Valley vineyards atop Mount Veeder and on the valley floor naturally restrict, concentrate, and carefully ripen this noble Bordeaux variety to coax a plush yet focused wine.
Darioush Signature Shiraz is crafted to coax the inherent complexity, structure, and age-worthiness of this versatile variety. Southern Napa Valley’s cooler microclimates and meticulous vineyard management naturally restrain vigor and intensify the rich, spicy, and soulful character of Shiraz.
The unique terroir of our rocky, higher-elevation Mount Veeder estate combines a cool, marine-influenced climate with exceptional sun exposure to naturally develop Cabernet Franc’s inherently earthbound, spice and black fruit flavors. This classic Bordeaux variety possesses both power and poise, and contributes layered, concentrated, earthen and fruit flavors to our Signature Cabernet Sauvignon each year.
In 2019, the virtues of old-vine Malbec grown from our estate vineyards in Mount Veeder and Oak Knoll, along with our partner Larkmead Vineyards in Calistoga compelled us to craft a singular, elegant offering of Darioush Signature Malbec. This is the fourth bottling of Darioush Malbec, following the 2015, 2014 and 2009 vintages.
An intriguing and rare bottling of 2019 Signature Napa Valley Red
Wine - a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and
Petit Verdot with a small portion of Shiraz.
Fragrant, alluring, and exotic, Viognier is a rarity in Napa Valley. Darioush Signature Viognier expresses its inherently bright and vibrant character when grown from the cooler locales of Oak Knoll where dense early morning fog and late afternoon breezes allow this delicate variety to ripen slowly and completely. The hallmark of Signature Viognier is its effusive aromatics and core of juicy stone fruit.
The hallmark of Darioush Signature Chardonnay is its progressive
style of integrating precision, richness, and complexity. Grown
from the winery estate and renowned Chardonnay vineyards of
Los Carneros, these cooler Southern Napa Valley climes exhibit
quintessential varietal characteristics while preserving inherent
freshness and vibrancy.
Our latest release of Sage Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from three small blocks nestled between 1800 - 2100 feet on our Mount Veeder vineyard estate. Mount Veeder is the most temperate of the mountainside Napa Valley AVA’s, its southernmost location, the marine influence of the nearby San Pablo Bay, moderate sun exposure and varied topography result in cool pockets at high elevations. These microclimates provide the ideal conditions for gradual ripening and flavor development; Signature Sauvignon Blanc shows remarkable brightness, purity, and refinement.
