    July 20, 2014 - Okay. I think this could be towards the sweet spot in its drinking window. Nice dense somewhate chewy cab. It took a while for it to open up but it really paired well with the ribeye at capital grill in minnesota. Nice finish with plenty of complexity. Mocha, cassis, tobacco, pepper and on the midpalate and finish. Very nice.

    April 20, 2014 - This was our entree red for Easter dinner with lamb chops encrusted with pancetta. Really great. By the way, we are not big Merlot fans for the most part, but this Darioush '06 was a fantastic exception.

    September 21, 2013 - This was fantastic. Big and bold with lush fruit. Got better through the night and peaked after the bottle had been open for 3 hours (no decant). Rich and velvety.

    March 23, 2013 - Nice big bold merlot. Cinnamon, smoke, oak, dark berries, full bodied, and long finish. Terrific bottle that makes you want more. 95% merlot 5% cab franc.

    February 8, 2013 - Aromas and flavors of cherry, plum and toasted oak. Rather fruity profile with moderate acidity and very soft tannins.
