Wine Spectator 91 points - Muscular and smoky, wrapped in a plush and appealingly showy package, this offers bold notes of blueberry, espresso and Asian spice. The tannins are big but fleshy. Drink now through 2023. 1,920 cases made. -TF  (Oct 15 2015)

Wine Advocate 89 points - The dense ruby/purple-colored, open-knit, exuberant, fleshy 2012 Shiraz offers up plenty of blackberry fruit intermixed with notions of forest floor, oak, pepper and spice. This attractive, lush 2012 is best drunk over the next 5-7 years. (Oct 2014)

Wine maker notes
Crafted to showcase the remarkable dynamism, complexity, structure and age-worthiness of this ancient varietal, Darioush Signature Shiraz displays the density and concentration characteristic of wines grown in our southern Napa Valley estate vineyards.

Producer
”The opening of the new winery and visitor center is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting moments in my life. Ever since I was a young man, when I began my passion for great wine, I dreamt of this day.” Darioush Khaledi grew up in Shiraz, one of Iran’s prominent wine-growing regions. His father was a hobbyist winemaker and as a young boy, Khaledi used to sneak sips from the barrel; as a young adult he became a devoted collector of fine wines. Trained as a civil engineer and with a career in construction, Darioush left Iran in the late 1970’s and emigrated to Southern California where he was faced with the challenge of rebuilding his life. Darioush and his brother-in-law pooled their resources and purchased a failing grocery store in the city of Los Angeles. Now thirty years later, together they operate one of the most successful independently owned grocery businesses in the United States, which alone employs over 1500 people. As the success of his grocery business grew, his passion for fine wine transformed from collector to producer. No longer was Darioush interested solely in collecting the world’s finest wines he was driven to create hand-crafted wines with the highest quality standards. Darioush is the culmination of the worldwide search for the ultimate vineyard estate. The Darioush Estate’s ninety-five acres are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay and Viognier.
