Tasting Notes:

The saturated flavors and textural quality of the 2009 vintage are a direct result of an idyllic, moderate growing season, enabling Darioush’s ‘signature’ combination of finesse and concentration. Vivid flavors of licorice, black cherry and mocha are wrapped in a sleek, savory package of sage and French lavender. Succulent, fully-developed tannins support a long finish with a lifted, fruit quality we can only describe as energetic and age-worthy.
