Late Harvest Shahpar
2011 Signature Shiraz, Napa Valley
Crafted to balance the fruit complexity, structure and age-worthiness of this ancient varietal, Darioush Signature Shiraz continues to demonstrate the remarkable potential of our cool vineyard site in Southern Napa Valley.
A recent string of cooler-than-average vintages in Napa Valley has yielded Shiraz with tremendous concentration, a refreshingly restrained fruit component, layers of exotic spice and a spirit for which collectors of intriguing wines wish.
Juicy blackberry and cola, expressive notes of saddle leather and black tea with aromatic notes of dried orange peel and cinnamon. Firm, age-worthy, and decantable for hours, the finish is long and persistent, with exquisite hints of bittersweet cocoa and licorice.
