2012 Darioush Cabernet Franc Napa image

A powerful wine from a classic vintage, this Cabernet Franc leads with notes of blueberry and plum joined by spiced notes of garam masala, black tea and pencil lead. Concentrated blackberry flavors dominate a firm and muscular palate, revealing the wines mountain-grown roots.



Darioush Cabernet Franc gains additional varietal complexity and sophistication in the glass, finishing with a profile of bittersweet cocoa, cedar and mocha. This vintage truly demonstrates the remarkable varietal potential of Cabernet Franc.
