Rare Rare! The Darioush 2014 Darius II Cabernet Sauvignon is Darioush's most exclusive release. Ripe, lush and profoundly concentrated, yet epitomizing the stylistic profile that's signature Darioush. 99 Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the Cabernet Sauvignon Darius II sparks both hedonistic and cerebral appreciation by exuding profound scents of preserved plums, blackberry compote, blueberry pie, kirsch and warm cassis with suggestions of candied violets, cigar box, Indian spices, fragrant earth, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, bold and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate delivers rich black fruit and spicy layers with a firm yet velvety frame and an epically long, earth-laced finish. Winery Notes: "2016 Darius II Cabernet Sauvignon echoes the remarkable seamlessness of its predecessors while expressing the vibrancy and generous fruit characteristic of the 2015 vintage. The wines predominantly hillside provenance is revealed in layers of blackberry liqueur, licorice and espresso, with savory, energetic notes of Darjeeling tea and dried orange peel adding further complexity. The soft, ripe and well-integrated tannins add plushness and texture; Darius II finishes long and persistent with notes of incense, sweet oak, and dried herbs.
