Darioush Signature Cabernet Franc 2018
Sourced exclusively from Darioush’s estate vineyards perched atop Mount Veeder and Atlas Peak, the unique rocky soils and cool, marine-influenced climate provide the perfect climate for the development of Cabernet Franc’s inherently earthbound, spice and black fruit flavors. Benefiting from exceptional sun exposure, the reustling wine is distinctly of Mount Veeder origins: a pure, singular expression of a classic Bordeaux variety.
Napa Valley, California
Darioush is the culmination of a lifetime of passion and aspiration to share the art, architecture, wine craftsmanship and culture of Darioush Khaledi and his wife, Shahpar Khaledi. Born in the mountains of Northern Iran, Darioush was raised in the remnants of Persian culture, where wine and culture were heavily embedded into society, throughout history, winemaking accompanied the very concept of hospitality, art, poetry and culture for millennia to come. Darioush was instilled with these historic ideals at an early age, and became a lifelong collector of old world wines infused with tradition but energized by modern technique. These two pillars remained key to Darioush as he immigrated to the Napa Valley as an entrepreneur determined to materialize his dream of sharing his journey through his love of wine.
