Using stone that was brought in from overseas, the winery is a beautifully created setting that recreates Persepolis, the capital of ancient Persia. This sumptuous setting creates a great environment for their tasting room. Cracked glass, crackling fire places, and even a private tasting room (for library wines) set a very modern, while warm environment. The wines, named after Persian dynasties or kings, are very classic in style. There is a combination of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, with Duel combining Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This is my favorite. However, the alteration to a 65% Shiraz, is different from other vintages, and perhaps not yet as mature or well balanced as previous endeavours. Further, the prices have really increased quite remarkably (we have been coming to the winery for the past 4 years), without necessarily an improvement in caliber. The late harvest wine (88% Semillon) named after the owner's wife (Shahpar) is spectacular -- but at $70 per 375 ml bottle, is a bit high!
