Enjoy now or through 2021."Tasting Notes:  This fruit complexity broadens on the palate with blackberry jam and licorice deftly balanced with hints of baker’s cocoa, espresso and sweet oak. The wine’s exquisite sense of proportion connotes careful vinification techniques, and its supple tannins and lingering finish will reward extended cellaring.

I love Darioush wines This was no exception. Dark garnet purple, with a big tannic punch. Blackberry and currant on the pallet.
