Winery purchase. Dense purple red in color. Mint, cassis, cola notes in nose. Same flavors in mouth, good acid, tannins

2013 Vintage - super tight on open but responds beautifully to air and time. Give it at least an hour. Spicy fruit bomb! Nice little blend.

Coravined bottle for about a month. A heck of a lot softer than it was which it badly needed.

Quite good. A little more oak than I prefer but very nice wine from Darioush folks in Napa.
