DARIOUSH Merlot, Napa Valley 'Signature' 2016

The 2016 'Signature' Merlot is a stunning new wine by the talented winemaking team at Darioush. Sourced from the Darioush Estate Vineyard as well as their vineyard in Mt. Veeder, this Merlot was aged for 22-months in largely new French oak prior to bottling. The aromatics are perfumed and simply gorgeous, as ripe dark plums combine with shades of red cherry tomato and black cherry cordial. The palate shows a wonderful silky character, with lovely tension and excellent weight. It goes on to impress as this displays characteristics of black cherry liquor, blackberry pie, dusty terroir and shades of sandalwood which expand through the finish. While fantastic now, this incredible Merlot should continue to evolve marvelously for fifteen plus years.
