Sage Vineyard Series
Late Harvest Shahpar
2016 Signature Shiraz, Napa Valley
Darioush Signature Shiraz is crafted to coax the inherent complexity, structure, and age-worthiness from this versatile variety. Southern Napa Valley’s cooler microclimates, along with meticulous vineyard management naturally restrain vigor while intensifying its rich, spicy and soulful character.
"...A wonderfully velvety texture and tons of spice and black fruit flavors, it has a lovely line of freshness and a very long perfumed finish.”
Robert Parker Wine Advocate | Rated 94
2016 Signature Shiraz is impressively textured and dense, showing rich layers of spice with a broad and generous palate of ripe, black fruits. Incense, orange zest, and dried violet aromas introduce decadent layers of black cherry, plum and berry compote accentuated by pink peppercorn, dusty baker’s chocolate and pie spice. Anchored by earthy notes of sandalwood and saddle leather, its sweet, ripe tannins support a long and deeply satisfying finish.
