One of the best California Cabs under $50 we've found this year! The 2014 Darioush Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon is a plush bordeaux-style blend that epitomizes the stylistic profile thats signature Darioush.
Tasting Notes: "Round, supple and sleek – all are traits of Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon, and the exemplary 2014 vintage is no exception. Anchored by a significant blend of Merlot, the wine opens with decadent top notes of chocolate coated cherries, fig and black currants. The palate showcases ripe red fruit, cherry and plum, with firm tannins and hints of spice – cinnamon, vanilla and cherry liqueur. This is a substantial wine, built to age, yet equally enjoyable in its youth."
Caravan shares the pedigree of Darioush’s Signature wines, but displays more ripe, saturated fruit with an elegantly textured finish. Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon is anchored in Cabernet Sauvignon with lesser amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and/or Malbec added for depth and complexity of flavor.
This is a rare Magnum (1.5L) bottle.
New release! The Darioush 2013 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Napa Valley vintage: ripe, lush and profoundly concentrated, yet epitomizing the stylistic profile thats signature Darioush.
95 Points Wine Enthusiast "Cellar Selection": "Smoky leather and cigar make for a formidable entry on the nose before huge, layered tannins rise to the fore. A balance of acidity and brightness lurks beneath the weight, rounded by succulent blackberry and black cherry. Cellar through 2022."
