Wine Description

Darioush Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 is a testament to their dedication to producing seamless and elegant wines. Crafted from carefully managed vineyards in the cooler climate Southern Napa Valley sites, this wine is a harmonious blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot, aged for 22 months in 85% new French oak barrels.

In the glass, this wine presents a deep, lustrous ruby color, hinting at the richness to come. The aromas dance out of the glass with an inviting bouquet of florals, underscored by a burst of brambly fruit flavors. Wild blackberry, cherry, cassis, and boysenberry dominate the nose, showcasing the expressive nature of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Additional contributions from Merlot provide a delightful complexity that lingers in the background.

As you take your first sip, savory secondary notes unfold on the mid-palate, enhancing the experience. Dried sage leaf, herbal incense, spiced chai, and cacao bring intrigue and depth to the wine. The taste is both lively and powerful, revealing the concentrated fruit that embodies the vintage’s exceptional character.

The winemaker, Hope Goldie, has demonstrated her skill and artistry in crafting this extraordinary wine. With finely-knit tannins, this Cabernet Sauvignon is built for longevity and will reward those who have the patience to cellar it for years to come.

The 2020 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is a limited-production gem, reflecting Darioush’s unwavering commitment to quality, consistency, and style. It stands as a true representation of the remarkable terroir of the Darioush Estate Vineyard in Napa Valley, as well as the Mount Veeder and hillside vineyards throughout the region.

This wine has already garnered critical acclaim, and rightfully so. Its youthful energy, structure, and restraint have earned it high scores and praise from experts, cementing its place as one of the finest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Darioush Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 is a true masterpiece, showcasing the best of Napa Valley winemaking and deserving a place in any collector’s cellar.

  1. Richard Kenney

    Surprisingly low acidity for its age, with ample fruit and structure. Complex and satisfying on the palate.

  2. Leland Landers

    Fruit-forward, structured Cabernet with firm tannins and a spicy finish. Cellar for 5+ years.

  3. Eugene Guy

    Youthful and vibrant with evolved fruit, lovely secondaries, and hints of vanilla and coconut. High alcohol, moderate acidity, energetic yet pleasant tannins. Lovely now.

  4. Christene Lindeland

    Exceptional wine!

  5. Michael Frazier

    Cary’s Night of the Aussie’s! (Cary’s Castle): Ended the night with a beauty!

  6. Paul Whisenant

    This wine exhibits a rich, rustic nose with dark fruit, pencil shavings, and hints of Bordeaux. The palate showcases a nice style, full-bodied yet elegant, with velvety tannins and a clear pedigree. Unusually, this vintage is made entirely from Cabernet.

  7. Steven Brothers

    Delicious wine with black currant, cherry, tobacco, and vanilla notes. Full-bodied, balanced, and high in alcohol. Saving a bottle to age.

Darioush Winery, nestled in the heart of Napa Valley along the picturesque Silverado Trail, stands as a testament to the fusion of exquisite wines and dramatic Persian architecture. As a renowned "destination winery" in California, Darioush Winery has earned a reputation for crafting exceptional wines, with their flagship Cabernet Sauvignon label, Darius II, taking center stage in their critically acclaimed range. One of the unique aspects that sets Darioush apart is their unconventional choice of vineyard locations. In the 1990s, when most vintners focused on warmer climates, Darioush recognized the potential of cooler macroclimates in the southern Napa Valley. They wisely acquired vineyards across the Oak Knoll and Mount Veeder AVAs, which now encompass an impressive 120 acres (48.5... Read More
Cabernet Sauvignon is a red grape varietal that is widely regarded as one of the world's most popular and highly valued wine grapes. This grape is grown in many regions around the world, including France, the United States, Australia, Chile, and Argentina. The wine made from this grape is known for its intense flavor, high tannin content, and longevity. Cabernet Sauvignon is a hybrid grape, the result of a cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, which are both native to the Bordeaux region of France. The grape is known for its thick skin, which helps it to withstand harsh weather conditions, and its small berries, which contribute to its concentrated flavor. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are typically harvested in the late fall, when the grapes have reached their optimal... Read More
