An enticing bouquet of violets and dark cherries introduce the 2008 Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine reflective of the warmer 2008 vintage. The palate is plush— brimming with rich fruit flavors of blackberry, strawberry-rhubarb and juicy plum balanced by earthy components— thyme, tobacco and bittersweet cocoa. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, while hints of licorice, lead pencil, cedar and vanilla are expressive on the finish.
Wine maker notes
Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of a unique blend with Merlot, Cabernet Franc or Malbec from our estate vineyards- lending more depth and complexity of flavor to the finished wine. Caravan shares the pedigree of Darioush’s Signature wines, but displays more ripe, saturated fruit with an elegantly textured finish.

Producer
”The opening of the new winery and visitor center is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting moments in my life. Ever since I was a young man, when I began my passion for great wine, I dreamt of this day.” Darioush Khaledi grew up in Shiraz, one of Iran’s prominent wine-growing regions. His father was a hobbyist winemaker and as a young boy, Khaledi used to sneak sips from the barrel; as a young adult he became a devoted collector of fine wines. Trained as a civil engineer and with a career in construction, Darioush left Iran in the late 1970’s and emigrated to Southern California where he was faced with the challenge of rebuilding his life. Darioush and his brother-in-law pooled their resources and purchased a failing grocery store in the city of Los Angeles. Now thirty years later, together they operate one of the most successful independently owned grocery businesses in the United States, which alone employs over 1500 people. As the success of his grocery business grew, his passion for fine wine transformed from collector to producer. No longer was Darioush interested solely in collecting the world’s finest wines he was driven to create hand-crafted wines with the highest quality standards. Darioush is the culmination of the worldwide search for the ultimate vineyard estate. The Darioush Estate’s ninety-five acres are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay and Viognier.
