Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Darioush Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
With meticulous attention to detail, Caravan is hand-harvested, clusters are hand-sorted twice before and after de-stemming. The grapes were cold soaked for 4 days then fermented in small closed topped tanks, with gentle pump-overs for optimal color extraction and tannin management. The wine was aged for 20 months, in a combination of 70% new French and European oak barrels. The wine was minimally handled through bottling.
A classically-styled round, supple and sleek red blend – 2017 Caravan highlights Cabernet Sauvignon blended with equal proportions of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The resulting profile is ripe and decadent with palate-pleasing notes of juicy plum, raspberry and flourless chocolate cake. Cabernet Sauvignon, the lion’s share of the blend, adds layers of complexity and an ideal balance between sweet and savory elements. Its supple yet firm and polished tannin is complemented by dark, spicy notes of black currant and cinnamon; Caravan has a youthful energy that would reward several years of aging.
