Darioush Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Signature 2009
Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 91 points by Connoisseurs' Guide: ...the 2008 version seems to be ever so slightly reined in and is principally guided by lots of very well-stated fruit. There is plenty of oak, to be sure, and the wine is not wanting in ripeness, yet it is the balance and equanimity of its parts that makes it so attractive now, just as its solidity and structure and firm, finely fit tannins are the sure guarantors of great longevity.
Darioush, a winery noted for its Bordeaux style estate wines, implements old world labor-intensive, micro-vineyard management and new world state of the art technology to craft fine wines from its estates located in the appellations of Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder and Oak Knoll. Under the direction of Darioush Khaledi and winemaker Steve Devitt, precision and quality are of the utmost importance at the winery.
