2019 Darioush 'Signature' Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA (750ml)
The estate's flagship wine from Hope Goldie. Richly scented, leading with tobacco, black cherry, plum and turned earth. Impressive depth, with voluptuous silky black and blueberry preserves. Angular tannins are buoyant, lifted by a balanced freshness and poise that collects and builds to a rich cocoa-tinged finish. - Decanter, 95 pts
A ripe, lush style, with waves of warmed plum sauce, cassis, Christmas pudding and melted black licorice rolling through, inlaid with singed tobacco, menthol and loam hints along the way. For fans of the big style. Drink now. - Wine Spectator, 93 pts
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon offers more plum and cassis fruits as well as scorched earth, camphor, and chocolate aromatics. Rich, full-bodied, and mouth-filling, it has ripe, polished tannins, terrific overall balance, and a great finish. - Jeb Dunnuck, 93 pts
Aromas of dark plums, dark chocolate, orange zest, sage and spice box. Full-bodied with chewy tannins. Rich, with fruity and dusty character and a firm finish. Better from 2023. - James Suckling, 92 pts
A blend of fruit from Mount Veeder and the broader Napa Valley AVA, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cab, matured 22 months in 85% new French oak. The wood lends plenty of cedary notes, but there's also ample cassis, blackberry and plum. In the mouth, this is full-bodied and velvety, without being overly rich or concentrated, with dark chocolate nuances creeping in on the finish. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 pts

Darioush estate vineyards in the Mount Veeder and Napa Valley AVA's have hit their stride, producing fruit with splendid concentration, compelling freshness, and graceful complexity. The final composition strikes a tightrope balance of youthful energy, structure, and restraint; the flagship wine rewards with extraordinary depth and poise.
