Rich wild berries with cocoa and charcoal notes on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Heavy tannins, dark berries and subtle notes of clove and pepper
My tasting notes finished with: nice, rich, stylish, and sturdy. Darioush is known for its big, bold Cabernets which I've had a number of times. This was my first opportunity to sample the Shiraz. I was impressed how stylish this wine is rather than simply an attempt at a highly extracted red. It should cellar well, too. At $68, it's no steal but it tastes great. Raise a glass!
