Darioush Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Inspired by the power and grace exhibited in the great wines of Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon from Darioush's cooler-climate, southern Napa Valley vineyards exhibit extraordinary depth, character and poise. Now in their second decade, these estate vineyards in the Mount Veeder, Napa Valley and Oak Knoll AVA's have hit their stride, producing fruit with splendid concentration and power, compelling freshness and graceful complexity. The textbook 2013 vintage allowed Winemaker Steve Devitt to weave together a Cabernet Sauvignon that balances highly aromatic, well-delineated Mount Veeder fruit with saturated flavors, polish and poise lent by our valley floor estates. Generous and concentrated on the palate, this dynamic wine delivers its signature of alluring, savory blueberry and blackberry fruit, freshly ground espresso and aromas of anise, dried sage and cigar-box. A satisfyingly persistent finish of dark fruits unfolds to reveal notes of graphite, toasted hazelnut and seamless, finely-knit tannins.

Wine EnthusiastA showcase of the vintage and varietal, this is a luxuriously thick and decadent wine, integrated in tannin and oak, with a length on the palate. Chocolate truffle, pencil lead and tobacco all have parts to play, meeting succulent raspberry and blueberry.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has plenty of crème de cassis, a broad, deep, full-bodied mouthfeel, moderate tannin, and a long finish. This is a 15-year wine.

Wine SpectatorA dense, powerful and wholly tannic expression, this chewy conundrum shows a ruggedness that will put off some while appealing to gamblers angling that it will come around. Hope lies with the core of blackberry and licorice. Best from 2020 through 2030. 9,155 cases made.
