Winemaker Notes

Originated from a 14th century copper and bronze basin, this label is characterized by the intricate detail in the border design and the simplicity of the fish contained by an imperfect circle. Color was enhanced throughout to bring vivacity to the fish, which are a strong symbol in the Persian culture. Fish denote the changing of a New Year during the Persian holiday No Ruz; they also represent Anahita, divinity of the waters and Persian goddess of fertility, healing and wisdom.

Aromas of violets, lavender, sweet black cherry and graphite abound, introducing an opulent palate of cassis, black licorice, plum and dark bittersweet chocolate. Ripe, fully-integrated tannins decadently enhance the wines flavor and texture into an enduring finish of exotic spices, vanilla bean and mocha.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and 5% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Packs in lots of deep, ripe plum, blackberry and wild berry flavors shaded by cedary, toasty oak, with touches of black licorice and sage. Full-bodied, firm and structured, this is a powerful style that's notably well-oaked but also impeccably balanced, smooth and at points fleshy, before the tannins firm up. Best from 2012 through 2024.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Darius II is more tightly knit and restrained aromatically, but what is there is impressive. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of graphite, spring flowers, black currants, and sweet black cherries. The wine hits the palate with tremendous opulence, richness, and intensity. The complexity does not yet equal the 2006, but there is more to it. The texture is richer, the finish is longer, and the seamlessness of the wine’s overall personality is flawless. This beauty should hit its peak in 3-4 years, and last for 20-25.
JS 93
James Suckling
Lots of intense blueberry character, with flowers, berries, and hints of vanilla bean on the nose. Full bodied, with a solid core of fruit and medium-chewy tannins. Powerful, but not jammy. Give it two to three years. Bit of a fruit bomb. 15+23+23+32. Find the wine

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
