Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a total rock star on the nose, cranking out beautifully boisterous notes of creme de cassis, preserved plums, warm blueberries and Black Forest cake with hints of menthol, mocha, baking spices, star anise and unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, rich and flamboyantly fruited in the mouth, the palate features a solid frame of super ripe, finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing very long and very spicy.
Blended with 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, 2% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, this is an impressive red wine, chalky and concentrated in tangy red fruit. With length and breadth, it has a complex structure and tightrope of tension that appeals and expands on the palate.
