Darioush Signature Merlot 2013
Wine AdvocateThe 2013s are bigger, richer and denser than the 2014 versions. The 2013 Merlot offers up similar roasted coffee, chocolate and mocha in a medium to full-bodied, dense and concentrated style. It should drink nicely for 10-12 years at the minimum.
Wine EnthusiastSoft in tannin and oak, this wine shows a cool-climate profile, its grapes sourced largely from Mount Veeder's mountainous terrain. Blackberry pie, cedar and crushed herb combine nicely alongside integrated power and full-bodied concentration.
Wine SpectatorTightly wound, with a well-built core of lively acidity and tannins, backed by accents of red currant, mineral and dusty cedar. Drink now through 2027. 2,871 cases made.
