    April 7, 2019 - Only needs a 60 min decant. Full bodied, rich fruit. Ovrerall nice balance, for me, this reaches prime in about 3 years and holds for another 5.

    July 2, 2017 - A remarkable Cab Franc from a stellar producer, showing deep extraction of color, nearly purple/black, with enticing black-fruit aromas and a rich, mouthcoating mélange of black cherry, smoke, herbs and spice, leading into a snappy, delicious finish. Favorite varietal in the Darioush lineup, and it's a great lineup to begin with.

    December 22, 2016 - A really nice Cab Franc.... Reminds me of the days of when Foley was making Pride Cab Franc. Just lush and well rounded, a touch sweet. A bit softer than I would love for it to be, but held up well against several powerhouses this evening.
