2008 Library Signature Shiraz

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. Grown from a combination of both old-vine Australian Shiraz and Northern Rhone clones, the finished wine stays true to its inherently spicy and seductive spirit.

Tasting notes

“Smoky, charcoal and rich berry flavors have a sanguine edge, at points hinting at flesh yet clamping down with muscle-bound tannins. Best from 2014 through 2024.”
Wine Spectator | Rated 92

Alluring aromas of blueberry, dried orange peel and crème de menthe introduce this bold and seductive 2008 Signature Shiraz. The warm, low-yielding vintage encouraged ripe and rich dark fruit flavors, reminiscent of boysenberry pie, balanced by earthy notes of bittersweet cocoa, coffee and tobacco. A fine tannin structure and exceptionally long finish reveals lovely notes of sweet clove, vanilla, cedar and spice.
