2019 Darius II
The Crown Jewel of the Darioush estate, Darius II captures the diverse and exquisite beauty within each vintage. With an
uncompromising commitment to crafting a wine with complexity, composure and refinement, Darius II is the hallmark of the Darioush style.
“This deep purple-hued effort offers a great nose of crème de cassis, scorched earth, charcoal, and leafy herbs, with
some background chocolaty oak. Rich, full-bodied, and concentrated on the palate, it’s beautifully balanced, has ripe,
present tannins, and one heck of a great finish.”

From a textbook vintage, 2019 Darius II seamlessly weaves together elegance and opulence with tremendous power. Brambly fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis are infused with toasted thyme, bay leaf and bittersweet cocoa for an exceptionally captivating mouthfeel. Silky smooth tannins frame the palate which reveals further notes of licorice, espresso crema and Tahitian vanilla. Chief contributions from our Sage Vineyard estate atop Mount Veeder gives this wine its exceptional depth and stature while maintaining its trademark savory complexity, polish, and composure.
