Exhibiting a classic Cabernet Sauvignon varietal profile from its cool, marine-influenced Mount Veeder origins, this exceptional vintage provides alluring aromatics of black cherry, incense and Tuscan leather intermingling with saturated dark fruits. A dense, savory, earthbound entry transitions seamlessly into flavors of blackberry pie and bittersweet cocoa with notes of cinnamon and sage. Even at a youthful stage, ripe and refined tannins indicate the potential for immediate as well as long term gratification. A long, cascading finish reveals a beautifully composed wine with a lifted quality that has become synonymous with Darius II.
