An opulent style that's also well-structured at the core. Offers rich blackberry, dusty mocha and smoked pepper flavors that finish with supple tannins.

Deep purple-black colored, the 2018 Shiraz bursts out of the glass with bold black cherries preserves, blackberry pie and baked plum scents plus suggestions of tar, licorice, black pepper and smoked meats. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and seductive, the generous fruit is framed by ripe, rounded tannins, and it finishes with a peppery kick.

Darioush Signature Shiraz is crafted to coax the inherent complexity, structure, and age-worthiness from this versatile variety. Southern Napa Valley’s cooler microclimates, along with meticulous vineyard management naturally restrain vigor while intensifying its rich, spicy and soulful character.
