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

"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

"Berries, spices and chocolate on the nose. Full bodied, with chewy tannins and a slightly hot finish. Lots of fruit though. No reason to wait. Pull the cork." -- James Suckling

 The Wine Advocate 

An innovative blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2006 Duel is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Shiraz. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet kiss of blackberries, cassis, pepper and subtle spice. Medium-bodied with silky tannins, a seductive style, and a good succulence as well as flesh, it should drink well for 7-8 years.

 The Wine Advocate

"Made from an identical blend, the 2007 Duel reveals a slightly deeper ruby/purple color in addition to more blueberry, blackberry, and forest floor aromas. The wine is medium to full-bodied, richer and more opulent than the 2006, with a deeper intensity to the fruit. Very pure, with burgeoning complexity as well as lots of character/personality, it, too, should drink well for 7-8 years." Robert Parker
