Background

Darioush Khaledi, a man passionate about fine wines founded Darioush Winery in 1997. Khaledi grew up in Iran's Shiraz region, a wine-growing region until the Islamic revolution - As an adult, he became a devoted collector of fine wines. Located just outside the Stag's Leap District, the Darioush Winery Estate benefits from the cooling marine influence of the San Pablo Bay.

Tasting Notes

2015 was a shy-bearing vintage overall, which further amplified the inherent depth and concentration of our mountain grown Cabernet Franc. Intensity is a hallmark of the vintage. Signature Cabernet Franc exhibits a dense, yet aromatic core of ripe black and blue fruits tangled with juicy plum, cassis, spice box and savory dried sage; a result of naturally reduced clusters per vine and a long, temperate growing season. Earthbound elements of steeped black tea, cola, and anise persist on the palate adding intrigue, though it’s the cascading finish and ripe, fine, dusty tannin that nod at the cellar-worthiness of 2015 Signature Cabernet Franc.
