Darioush Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Signature 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Inspired by the complexity and style of Bordeaux’s cooler-climate wines, Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies how meticulous farming in southern Napa Valley’s fog-influenced districts and hillsides results in powerful, personality-driven Cabernet Sauvignons with extraordinary character, depth and poise.

The nose on this full-bodied wine opens to opulent bouquets of chocolate, cherry, eucalyptus, celery, forest floor, tobacco, and graphite. The palate launches with a mineral cast, then introduces deep plum, black cherry and raisin, along with chocolate, espresso, cherry, woodsy alcohol, and charcoal, all intermingling in a series of layered harmonies. A quite complex blending of flavors leads to a very long and satisfying finish.

Robust and potent, offering ripe, dense blackberry, licorice, lead pencil, cedar and roasted herb flavors that are full-bodied and concentrated, all the while holding onto a tight focus and ending with a long, chewy, persistent finish. Best from 2013... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Darioush Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Signature 750ml



Tasting Notes:

A rich, generous and complex vintage offering aromas of European dark chocolate, blackberry, espresso and graphite framed by succulent, fully-developed tannins and a sleek, old-world, mineral-driven structure. This age-worthy wine possesses Darioush’s ‘Signature’ combination of concentration, refinement and finesse, resulting in vivid, lingering flavors of black licorice, cassis and mocha, complimented by a savory finish of lavender, cigar box and toasted hazelnut.

Inspired by the complexity and style of Bordeaux’s cooler-climate wines, Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies how meticulous farming in southern Napa Valley’s fog-influenced districts and hillsides results in powerful, personality-driven Cabernet Sauvignons with extraordinary character, depth and poise.

8783 cases produced.

Notes: Aged 22 months in 85% new Chateau Traditional French oak barrels from Taransaud, Seguin Moreau, Radoux, Bouisset and Treuil.
