Explore Darius II

Highlighting the crown jewel of the Darioush estate, this rare coupling features our current 2016 offering with a Library release from 2006. Darius II captures the diverse and exquisite beauty within each vintage.


This exclusive tasting set highlights a decade of Darius II. With an uncompromising commitment to crafting a wine with complexity, composure, and refinement, Darius II is the hallmark of the Darioush style.

Comprised of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, 2006 Darius II exhibits a gorgeously textured palate of ripe blackberries and licorice accented by earth, dark espresso roast and exotic spices. Robert Parker Jr. bestowed 93 points, deeming it a "beauty" with "considerable complexity as well as accessibility."

The current release, 2016 Darius II, bares its mountainous origins with lovely aromatics— crushed violets, Kirsch, crème de cassis and incense-laced black fruits. The Wine Advocate rated it 99, deeming it "sparks both hedonistic and cerebral appreciation" adding that it is "full-bodied, bold and decadently fruited" with "rich black fruit and spicy layers with a firm yet velvety frame and an epically long, earth-laced finish."
