A rotating collection of special, coveted selections re-released from our library in very limited quantities.
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 AVA’s 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.
Prompted by the desire to continuously practice and perfect our craft, Rosé Trial Number Two is our second experiment sourced from two distinct varieties that we’ve cultivated for the past decade – it is a blend of direct-to-press Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Napa Valley Shiraz.
Duel is the idyllic marriage of two distinguished varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This unique blend seeks to harmonize the deeply satisfying fruit and earthy minerality of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz’ inherently fresh berry fruits and exotic spice. Hailing from vineyards on the valley floor, Duel is round and supple on the palate and accessible in its youth – it’s a heady, full-bodied wine – Cabernet Sauvignon lends a tangle of black fruits and dried herbs on the palate and a long, sweet tobacco finish.

This two bottle library set of Signature Chardonnay features the 2012 and 2013 vintages. As the first vintage to showcase fruit from our Mount Veeder estate, 2012 Chardonnay exudes all the desired aromatics of this slow-ripening, cool climate varietal: seamlessly integrated layers of vibrant citrus, stone fruits and delicate mineral tones. Its predecessor, the 2013, shows dynamism and richness—with vivid and aromatic notes of nectarine, green apple and citrus blossom and refined flavors of stone fruit and guava accented by hints of hazelnut.
