Darioush Shiraz Napa Valley Signature 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Connoisseurs' Guide: Here is a wine over which fans of hedonistic Syrahs are certain to swoon, and it is most assuredly anything but dainty. Its very ripe, broadly spicy, oak-enriched aromas literally blow from the glass, and its extravagant, highly concentrated flavors of dark berries, smoked meat, chocolate and caramel follow closely in measure and kind. There is no getting around the fact that it is a very big wine and one whose ample tannins need no fewer than five or six years of smoothing, but it is as deeply fruited as it is complex and powerful, and it is much more than a simple exercise in unrestrained ripeness. (Jul 2013)
