Darioush Signature Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014

$49.99

Limited new Signature Chardonnay release from Darioush. Order while it's still available. 100% Chardonnay, sourced exclusively from Darioush's estate vineyards in the Napa Valley, Oak Knoll and Carneros districts, and aged for eleven months in 70% new French oak. Tasting Notes:  "Influenced by a cooler than average growing season, the Darioush 2014 Signature Chardonnay is powerful, sleek and vibrant, and was bottled unfiltered to maintain a strong sense of place and high concentration of flavor. Bright aromatics of white peach and quince entice, with layers of green apple, creamy lemon meringue, yeast and toasted wheat in the mid-palate, finishing with a pure, delicate minerality. A promising vintage that will evolve well for several years."

This Chardonnay was wild. Never had a chard like this. Such heavy viscosity to it! Since it was tasted blind, someone even asked if it could possibly be a dessert wine. My first and final thought was a Roussanne. So much honey, Meyer lemon, apricot and pineapple. Full bodied and large Chardonnay.

Very nice from start to finish. Good balance between fruit and mineral. Bold Napa Chardonnay very well crafted. Would probably benefit from a few more years in the cellar...

Not bad for a whitey. Smooth but not piercing. Light acidity
