2016 Caravan Cabernet by Darioush

 Great price for a great Napa Cabernet!

2016 Caravan Cabernet by Darioush...$44.99 / 750ml  (case discount eligible.)

Caravan shares the pedigree of Darioush’s Signature wines, but
displays more ripe, saturated fruit with an elegantly textured finish.
Caravan is anchored in Cabernet Sauvignon with lesser amounts
of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and/or Malbec added for depth and
complexity of flavor

Solidly built, with a beam of cassis and blackberry notes racing through, lined with sweet tobacco, savory and sage hints. Shows ample toast on the finish, with a violet detail imparting lift and ample fruit persisting. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2020 through 2028.
- Wine Spectator: 92 Points
