Darioush Shiraz Napa Valley Signature 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Connoisseurs' Guide: Very much draughted in the highly oaked and unabashedly ripe style that has become this winery's calling card, this most recent Syrah from Darioush is an immense and unrestrained wine that simply demands attention. For all of its bluster and sheer power, it maintains a remarkable focus on real Syrah fruit, and, while it may strike some as too much of a good thing, those who prefer Syrahs with uncompromising richness will find it a near-perfect partner to the likes of slow-simmered, melt-in-your mouth lamb shanks or short ribs of beef.
