SKU DaroCab11


Darioush's cooler climate, southern Napa Valley vineyards produce wines with extraordinary depth and character. Now in their 15th vintage, these mature estate vines are producing fruit with splendid concentration and balance. Captivating aromas of anise, expresso, dried herbs and orange peel introduce the 2011 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon. Sumptuous and savory blackberry, dark cherry and fig are revealed during decanting, with notes of bittersweet cocoa, black olive and nutmeg adding intrigue and complexity. The vintage exhibits composure, with both depth of flavor and ripe, refined tannins.

Wine EnthusiastSanguine and brooding in dense layers of juicy black fruit, leather and tobacco, this is classic Napa Valley Cabernet with an elegance at its core, that's also seamless, complex and age-worthy. From relatively cooler sites in Oak Knoll and Mount Veeder, and a cooler year too, this vintage sings for this producer, showing balance and power in equal measure.

Wine Spectatornitially hard-edged, with herb, dill and cedar notes joining the dark berry, espresso and cigar box flavors. Broad-shouldered, yet with a measure of grace and finesse, ending clean, pure and focused. Drink now through 2024. 7,811 cases made.
