A rotating collection of special, coveted selections re-released from our library in very limited quantities.
The quintessential offering of the Darioush estate. Reflective of Darioush's individualism and dedication to crafting a Cabernet Sauvignon that bridges Bordeaux's old world complexity and poise with Napa Valley's modern and progressive style, stature and depth.
Aromatic complexity and typicity is a 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.
Our limited series Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon is the fortuitous result of experimental winemaking endeavors throughout the varied topography of Napa Valley’s southernmost growing region, Mount Veeder. Evidenced in our dedication to farming our Sage estate perched at 1800 feet, Mount Veeder is an AVA we deeply admire. The most temperate of the Napa Valley hillside appellations, it’s cool marine-influence lent by the nearby San Pablo Bay, moderate sun exposure, ancient soil composition and high elevation all combine to support gradual ripening and flavor development in the Bordeaux varieties destined for Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon and Darius II.
