One of the best wines I've had in awhile

Darioush "Caravan" estate, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, CA 2007,

I haven't had Darioush in quite some time and I was shocked at what a gem I've been missing. The Caravan shares the same pedigree of the other Darioush labels but displays more ripe fruit with a long lingering elegant finish. This wine is brimming with black fruit, anise and dense chocolate/coffee.
