Very well controlled acidity and flavors lasted decanted for 1 1/2 hours. Darioush, for a larger house, does a very good job across the board.

My attempt at counteracting the crappy end to my work day. What do you know, it worked.

Blackberry, cocoa powder and grilled meats on the nose. Deep purple in the glass with long legs. Purple and blue fruits are quite prominent, finishing with framboise and just enough tannins to balance out the fruit. Definitely made for food.

Kitchen sink in a glass. Mint, smoke, meth, wet stones, white pepper, cranberries, ham, plums, grapefruit, and Carmel. New stuff shows up with every sip. Great acidity. Keep forgetting how much I enjoy their wines.

Still a lot of finish on this one. Smooth but still has that pepper kick at the end. Lovely wine.

Very good wine. Didn't taste like a Syrah to me. Lots of dark fruit, very flavorful.

A big bold and sexy wine. Not much on the nose but on the palate this wine rocks. Fantastic notes of dark fruit, coffee and spice blow up in the glass in such a big way. This wine is very well structured with a big but velvety tannin backbone. A very nice wine.
