2020 Darioush 'Caravan' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$69.95

A refreshing and aromatic lift of red fruits reaches out of the glass to welcome a first sip that is framed by a smooth medley of red plum, raspberry, red licorice, and sassafras. The soulful fruit core is mixed with savory notes of bay leaf, green tea, and cinnamon stick, then all wrapped in coating of milk chocolate. These harmonious and alluring flavors resonate on the long, enjoyable finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Very rich and concentrated but also well structured, this wine achieves good balance and an appetizing mouthfeel. Red and black cherries, cinnamon, cedar and toasted oak all contribute to its tasty flavor complexity.
