Darioush – Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Signature – Napa Valley

Darioush – Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Signature – Napa Valley

The nose is elegant, ripe and offers a very slight richness as well as a beautiful grain. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis, dried raspberry and small notes of blueberry associated with touches of gray pepper, spices as well as very discreet / imperceptible hints of undergrowth. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, suave and offers a beautiful definition, a slight acid frame, precision, a beautiful delicacy / expression, suavity, a bit aerial as well as a slight gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of dried strawberry, crushed cassis and small notes of blackberry combined with slight touches of spices, violets, tonka beans as well as discreet hints of dry local forest soil and an imperceptible hint of undergrowth. Tannins are structuring and elegant. Good length. Slight chews on the finish. There is an imperceptible hint of coffee on the finish. There is a very discreet hint of almond on the persistence. Good persistence.
