From a textbook vintage, 2019 Darius II seamlessly weaves together elegance and opulence with tremendous power. Brambly fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis are infused with toasted thyme, bay leaf and bittersweet cocoa for an exceptionally captivating mouthfeel. Silky smooth tannins frame the palate which reveals further notes of licorice, espresso crema and Tahitian vanilla. Chief contributions from our Sage Vineyard estate atop Mount Veeder gives this wine its exceptional depth and stature while maintaining its trademark savory complexity, polish, and composure.

More expensive, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Darius II is based on 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. This deep purple-hued effort offers a great nose of crème de cassis, scorched earth, charcoal, and leafy herbs, with some background chocolaty oak. Rich, full-bodied, and concentrated on the palate, it's beautifully balanced, has ripe, present tannins, and one heck of a great finish. It's a powerful, beast of a wine from this team that's going to evolve for 15+ years.

For statisticians, the impressively concentrated 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Darius II includes 6% Merlot. Aged largely in new Taransaud-coopered barrels, it slowly gives up brooding notes of cedar, dark toast and dark chocolate, plus blackberries and plums. Full-bodied and tannic, this needs time in the cellar to soften a bit and-hopefully-reveal more nuance. For now, it's powerful, long and intense but a bit unremittingly dark in terms of its flavor profile.
