Darioush Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2013

$64.99

A small-production gem usually available at the winery tasting room only.  Limited. Earth-driven, with plenty of sweet black fruits, the Darioush 2013 Signature Cabernet Franc is described by winemaker Steve Devitt as “the sleeper of the vintage. A bouquet of spiced chai and herbs de Provence overlays plush flavors of blueberry, fig and black currant with notes of cigar box and smoke. A gorgeously textured finish reveals notes of graphite and dusty chocolate.

Simply fantastic! Spicy, dark fruit and baking spices give an incredible drinking experience. Despite being a ‘13, the wine is not over the top but instantly pleasing. Drink ‘em if you got ‘em!

Wow! Lush blueberries, black cherries and a pop of raspberry. Dark chocolate, and a hint of freshly potted garden mint. Tannins are velvet and the acidity pops nicely. It has a slightly austere finish which begs you for another sip. Well don't mind if I do!

Few ppl make a 100% Cab Franc - I love it - easily held its own in a night filled with Bordeaux and Cab Sauv lucky to experience this one!

This is an amazing cab franc. Massive fruit. Huge blueberry, dark chocolate. Elegant wine that just a number of notches above others. This is one of the most underrated and forgotten wines. Darioush. We hope you recover quickly from the fires.

Dark and dense. Rhubarb pie nose. Red licorice goes to spicy dark chocolate. Tannins really big but smooth.

Definitely needs to be decanted. But once it opens up, leather / smoky nose, smooth mouth feel. Little bit of spice at the end.
