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.
This incredibly pure and elegant style exhibits dark berried fruit with power and precision and is accented with flavors of cracked peppercorn, allspice, and sweet cured meats. Refreshing acidity and firm yet suave tannins create the impression of an old-world style that will be rewarded with time in the cellar.
A long, focused finish features aromatic violets, Earl Grey tea, and volcanic-iron minerality.
"...The full-bodied palate is chock full of concentrated black fruit and peppery layers, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and spicy."Wine Independent | Rated 94
