2stars CGCW_1.gif "A highly distinctive wine. Likely to be memorable"

"Here is the kind of wine about which controversy has suddenly sprung, for while it is high in oak and very ripe, it is also a deep and wonderfully well-structured wine. It will have spears hurled its way by those who drink nothing other than high-acid, low-alcohol wines, but, make no mistake, this noteworthy bottling has the complexity, the fruity substance and the layered interest that makes fine Cabernet famously prized, and it is balanced to grow for another decade or more."  Rated 92

"It would be hard to imagine more oaky richness than comes in this massive, fully-ripened wine, and we would not argue with those who say it is a little too hard to find any clear-cut varietal character in between the wine's layers of caramel, sweet toast, cream and vanilla. We are, however, more than content in its fruity depth, and we are willing to wait for its five-to-ten-year tannins to soften before serving it up with well-seasoned meat stews and roasts."  Rated 91

Wine Spectator Online , February 28, 2011
 
"This week we showcase a dozen white wines from the Golden State to tempt you into thinking spring is nearly here. There are some terrific Chardonnays, Viogniers, Rhône blends and a “kitchen sink”-style white at a buy-by-the-case price. All of these recommendations come in at $40 and under."

Darioush 2009 Signature Viognier, Napa Valley          Rated 90 | $39

"Very refreshing, showing a lip-smacking acidity that gives a fresh, vibrant feel to the apricot, peach, nectarine and citrus flavors.  Wonderful purity and persistence mark the finish, punctuated by a terrific sleekness. --M.W."

2008 Signature Pinot Noir
03/01/2011

logo_wine_connoisseurs_guide.gif Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - March 2011

"Here the fully-ripened, richly oaky Darioush style is layered on top of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, and despite what might, on the surface, appear to be a mismatch, the combination worked out entirely handsomely. To be sure, this is no quiet, nuanced Pinot but a deep, rich, plush mouthful that might have gone over the top save for the wine's excellent balance and fleshy, near velvety texture. Its boldness and latter palate tannins call for service with dishes like Boeuf En Daube."  sym_1star.gif  Rated 90

2007 Darius II Cabernet Sauvignon | Rated 93

jamessuckling200x47.gif Tasting Notes, February 15 2011

"Lots of intense blueberry character, with flowers, berries, and hints of vanilla bean on the nose. Full bodied, with a solid core of fruit and medium-chewy tannins. Powerful, but not jammy. Give it two to three years. Bit of a fruit bomb." -- James Suckling
