Tasting notes

Exotic and complex, 2010 Darius II commands attention with dense earthbound elements of dried fig and blueberry, dried provencal herbs, concentrated dark berry and cocoa powder.

Higher portions of Mount Veeder Cabernet Franc distinguish this wine from its predecessors. The refined and persistent tannins are ripe and compact, promising long-life and cellar-worthy rewards. For long-time collectors, the dense structure and potency of the 2010 Darius II is reminiscent of the 2006 and 2002 vintages.
