Darioush Khaledi has proven to be the master of the rich, fleshy, full-bodied style, and once again, his winery delivers a bottling with a virtually unrivalled combination of intensity, drama and hedonistic pleasure. In its youth, the wine is at once both open and brooding, and its invitingly sensual aromas and flavors, while seeming to ask for early enjoyment, are far from fully developed. One can easily partner this lush wine with juicy filet mignons or a standing rib roast, but putting it in the cellar for half a decade or more seems the better idea. *Three Stars*
The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot) offers up classic scents of creme de cassis, licorice and graphite, a full-bodied mouthfeel, a complex, multilayered texture, lots of cassis, incense, and spice box, sweet tannins, decent acidity and impressive depth. This beauty should drink well for another 15+ years. (RP)
