Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet from Darioush's second label opens with a fragrant red currant bouquet with a hint of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a pomegranate and red raspberry blend with notes of oak and hints of menthol, red cherry and a splash of cranberry. The finish is dry and moderate tannins build up and last for a very long time. This wine would benefit from some decanting and needs to be paired with a well marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A fabulous vintage produced a stylish and substantial 2012 Caravan with a firm, structured palate and sleek, polished tannins. Offering saturated flavors of dark cherry and blueberry as well as notes of chocolate and white truffle; this is a round, supple and thoroughly approachable wine ready to be open and enjoyed.
