Darioush – Shiraz 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is racy and offers power and a small concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, small wild berries and small notes of violet associated with fine touches of wild red berries, very fine hints of crushed strawberry as well as hints of pepper, cloves/spices and a very discreet hints of rose. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy/acidulous frame, a fine tension as well as a very fine concentration. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe wild cassis, blackberry and small notes of crunchy wild small red berries associated with small touches of grey pepper, spices as well as a subtle hint of rose. Good length and persistence. A very discreet hint of caramelization on the finish.
