Darioush Signature Merlot 2013


SKU 20382



Aromatic complexity and typicity is a hallmark of Darioush Signature Merlot. Our meticulous vineyard practices, the unique microclimates and soils from our Southern Napa Valley vineyards atop Mount Veeder and on the Valley floor naturally restrict, concentrate and carefully ripen this noble Bordeaux variety to coax a plush yet focused wine.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013s are bigger, richer and denser than the 2014 versions. The 2013 Merlot offers up similar roasted coffee, chocolate and mocha in a medium to full-bodied, dense and concentrated style. It should drink nicely for 10-12 years at the minimum.

Wine EnthusiastSoft in tannin and oak, this wine shows a cool-climate profile, its grapes sourced largely from Mount Veeder's mountainous terrain. Blackberry pie, cedar and crushed herb combine nicely alongside integrated power and full-bodied concentration.

Wine SpectatorTightly wound, with a well-built core of lively acidity and tannins, backed by accents of red currant, mineral and dusty cedar. Drink now through 2027. 2,871 cases made.
