Aromatic complexity and typicity is the hallmark of Darioush Signature Merlot. Our meticulous vineyard practices, the unique microclimates and soils from our Southern Napa Valley vineyards atop Mount Veeder and on the Valley floor naturally restrict, concentrate and carefully ripen this noble Bordeaux variety to coax a plush yet focused wine.

A spirited red that's a touch exotic, offering polished yet well-structured black cherry, sandalwood and mocha-espresso flavors that sail toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2029. 1,975 cases made.

All Merlot, the 2019 Merlot offers lots of ripe red and black cherry fruits as well as ample chocolate, spice, and new leather nuances. It's rich, medium to full-bodied, has good mid-palate depth, and is one seriously delicious Merlot to drink over the coming decade.

A combination of fruit from the mountain and valley floor, the 2019 Merlot features scents of cherries, mocha and cinnamon. A balanced, supple effort, this medium to full-bodied wine is velvety and easy drinking. No, it's nothing profound but is a very good drink that finishes with enough dusty tannins and bright acids to keep it food friendly.

The 2019 Merlot is jammy, inky and ladled with sweet oak. Any Merlot lusciousness that might have once been present is completely obscured by heavy-handed winemaking.
