In the late 1990s, Darioush was founded with a focus on site selection and cooler microclimates in Southern Napa Valley. Today, the estate comprises 120 acres in the Mount Veeder and Oak Knoll AVA's. They practice Bordeaux-style blending to produce highly regarded and often full-throttle reds and whites. Caravan is a terrific bargain in Napa Valley Cabernet. It offers subtle toasty oak with layers of black currants, fig and cocoa, with soft, velvety tannins.
