2012 Darioush Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #1229461 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Velvety and seductive, this provides a fine example of the variety’s sultriness, a study in ripe black cherry, clove and cinnamon that’s generous in tannin without going overboard. With a decant or couple swirls of the glass, expect the power to soften and the complexity to take on new vigor. (VB) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

K&L Notes

Darioush Winery is a California wine producer located off the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley, and was established in 1997 by Darioush Khaledi. It is known as a "destination winery" in Napa for its dramatic Persian architecture, and produces a range of wines that repeatedly receive high scores in the press. Darioush Khaledi was born and raised in Iran, where his father made wine as a hobby. He immigrated to the United States in the 1970s, and founded a successful grocery store chain called KV Mart. On his 20th wedding anniversary, he visited Napa Valley with his wife, where they tried California wines for the first time, and decided to buy land and start a winery. The rich style of Darioush's wines appeals to many, including the likes of the American wine critic, Robert Parker, who has given the wines scores in the high 90s.
