  • Deep purple/red color. Aromas of blackberries, licorice, eucalyptus and oak spices. Ripe, full-bodied fruit in the mouth with excellent depth and length and well-integrated tannins and oak. Very silky and thick on the palate. A delicious Napa Cab at the sweet spot of maturity.

  • Very smooth - needed to decant for a couple of hours but was still going strong. This could have lasted another couple of years but doubt it will be much better.

  • This was the hit of the night tremendous bottle. We started with a very well-balanced Pinot Noir to pair with Thai food. We then allowed the Darioush to decant for approximately 45 minutes. The initial nose was very tight with balanced tannins on first sip. As the bottle allowed to breathe, there was tremendous balance in stone fruit and mild oak, licorice, toast and casis, with a long, enduring finish. The long finish and the nose of the wine were tremendous. As the vapors Permeated the nasal passages it change the profile of the wine to one of almost a ethereal, silky, luxurious and buttery mouthfeel. This is a very well-balanced and finely tuned wine, drinking
    very well now and likely to do so for several more years. Its definately not passed prime. I thought the 2007 vintage was very good, imagine laying that bottle down for another 10 years. Drink up you won't be disappointed.

  • Opened and tasted over 2 hrs. Deep brick color with crimson edges. Ripe fruit with caramel, leather and cinnamon notes. Velvety mouthfeel with a smooth, consistent finish. Drinking well now with a couple of years left.

  • 2003 was not a good vintage so my expectation was muted and felt wine needed to be drank. Decanted for 3 hours. Initially I was not getting anything on the nose, but flavor was good 90pts. Over the next hour the wine kept on improving to our pleasant surprise. Wine ended up being terrific and was actually better than the 07 that we tasted this against. WS identified this wine as being one of the best from that vintage in a retasting recently, I agree!
