We have always believed that Shiraz has the potential to match the structure, complexity and age-worthiness of the great Napa Valley Cabernets, while maintaining its inherent spirit of spicy, dark fruit. The 2003 Darioush Signature Shiraz is a polished, graceful, yet substantial wine that will challenge both old and new world perceptions of what a Shiraz can be.

This exceptional vintage combines luxurious, dark fruit and exotic spices from the old vines in our Ashley Vineyard with the elegant structure and minerality from our Estate Vineyard. Saturated flavors of wild blackberries and pomegranate, complemented by a spice-box of cinnamon stick, clove, white pepper and sandalwood incense, culminate in a silky finish that lingers on the palate for more than thirty seconds. The 2003 Darioush Signature Shiraz is an unforgettable, soul-stirring wine that will continue to evolve over the next decade.
