RD - Darioush Darius II 2015
2015 Darius II Cabernet Sauvignon echoes the remarkable complexity and seamlessness of its predecessors while expressing the vibrancy and generous fruit characteristic of the 2015 vintage. Layered aromas of blackberry liqueur, incense, and licorice introduce this provocative yet harmonious wine experience. With depth and intensity on the palate, Darius II expresses its provenance as a predominately hillside Cabernet Sauvignon blend – abundant black fruits, black currants and plum – mingle with savory, energetic notes of Darjeeling tea, five-spice, dried orange peel and finely-ground espresso. A flourish of soft, seamlessly integrated tannins adds texture; Darius II Cabernet Sauvignon finishes long, with persistent cedar, tobacco, and sweet oak.
