Mount Veeder

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • A single-vineyard offering from our high-elevation Sage Vineyard estate, in the Mount Veeder nested appellation
  • This exclusive blend features equal proportions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc
  • Bright, expressive and youthful, the wine is poised to reward the patient collector
  • Dark, dense black fruits are wrapped in earthy, mineral-laden notes, with richly textured tannins

This exceptional red blend highlights the high-elevation, Mount Veeder site that is the cornerstone of our Darius II and Signature wines. The marine-influenced, rocky slopes of our Sage Vineyard estate are responsible for cultivating wines with inherent complexity, power, and finesse. Each block of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot selected for this Premiere Napa Valley blend expresses the purity of this site and the varietal in equal measure. Elevating this harmonious blending, the remarkable 2019 vintage in Napa Valley, with its moderate weather and extended hang-time, enhanced the wine’s most desirable traits - imparting exceptional vibrancy of fruit, freshness, and balance. This is an age-worthy offering, poised to reward the patient collector.

Winemaker, Darioush

Winemaker, Hope Goldie

Hope Goldie is our master of a thousand decisions. Hope oversees all oenology and wine production operations; she carries on the meticulous attention paid in the vineyard into the cellar, laboratory and crush pad. Her work is in the fine tuning – lot by lot, she applies her vast knowledge of fermentation science, sensory chemistry, viticulture and enology.

Hope's dream of becoming a winemaker formed in childhood, working alongside her father in Washington making Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Carignan and was crystallized under the tutelage of sensory chemist Ann Noble at UC Davis. As her lead grad student, the California Department of Food & Agriculture sponsored Hope’s quantitative microbiology thesis work on Botrytis cineria. Her subsequent responsibilities as a Brewer at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, and in cellar operations and oenology at Opus One and other fine estates throughout Napa Valley strengthened her desire to make exceptional, high-end Bordeaux blends.

Hope joined Darioush as our Enologist in 2005 and continued her contributions as Winemaker alongside Darioush's founding Winemaker, Steve Devitt, for ten years before being promoted to Director of Winemaking beginning with the 2018 vintage. Today, Hope continues to oversee all aspects of winemaking at Darioush and extends her expertise as a member of the Board of Directors for the American Society of Enology and Viticulture.

Country born: United States

Education: M.S. in Food Science and Technology/Enology, University of California, Davis, 1998 B.A. History, Earlham College, 1990.

Years in the wine industry: 20-30 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
I’m an advocate of site-expressive, varietally correct wines. My approach is to remain as hands-off as possible, allowing the vineyard to shine through in the finished wine.
