Wine Review: This wine is a vibrant brick red. On the nose this wine has a mild berry bouquet. On the palate, the wine is rich, flavorful, and silky. This wine is built for a hearty meal. Those who like Aussie style Shiraz will favor this one. The finish is slightly dry and enjoyable, but a bit hot. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This exceptional vintage combines luxurious, dark fruit and exotic spices from the old vines in our Ashley Vineyard with the elegant structure and minerality from our Estate Vineyard. Saturated flavors of wild blackberries and pomegranate, complemented by a spice-box of cinnamon stick, clove, white pepper and sandalwood incense, culminate in a silky finish that lingers on the palate for more than thirty seconds. The 2003 Darioush Signature Shiraz is an unforgettable, soul-stirring wine that will continue to evolve over the next decade.
