Darioush – Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 – Napa Valley

(75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot) The nose is fruity, elegant, fine, well structured, racy and relatively powerful. It reveals notes of cassis and blackberry associated with touches of blueberry jam, spice and liquorice. The palate is fruity, racy and offers minerality, freshness, an acid frame as well as a nice and silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry and black cherry associated with touches of cassis, plum as well as slight notes of graphite, wood and a very discreet hint of hazelnut. Tannins are fine, elegant and young. Good length. (2018+)
