Darioush Winery

Daroush Khaledi and his wife, Shahpar, founded Darioush in 1997, and began to realize a lifelong aspiration to share the art, architecture, wine, craftsmanship and culture that inspired his journey from Iran to America. Under the direction of winemaker Steve Devitt, Darioush crafts Bordeaux style estate wines from its estates located in the Mt. Veeder and Oak Knoll appellations. The Darioush visitor center in Stag’s Leap District, with its Persian architecture and beautifully landscaped grounds, is one of the most unique sites in the Napa Valley.

Darioush 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

Captivating aromas of anise, espresso, dried herbs and orange peel introduce the 2011 Signature Cabernet Sauvignon. Sumptuous and savory blackberry, dark cherry and fig are revealed during decanting, with notes of bittersweet cocoa, black olive and nutmeg adding intrigue and complexity. The vintage exhibits beautiful composure, with both depth of flavor and ripe, refined tannins that leave one wanting more.
