The benchmark grape at Fazeli Cellars is the Shiraz, due both to its popularity and it’s ties to the Fazeli family’s heritage. The wine is named for the fabled city of ancient Persia, and harkens back to a time when Shiraz was famous for making wine. Today, Fazeli Cellars bottles and blends Shiraz more than any other grape. The richly layered 2009 Shiraz, for example, is a complex wine with notes of blackberry, black pepper, and clove, and brought home a gold from the 2013 Wine Marker Challenge. In addition the Shiraz, they also produce a host of award-winning wines, with a catalogue that leans heavily toward red. Ruby options include the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Mehregan blend, and Grenache, but for white lovers, Fazeli also makes a fresh, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc, an acidic wine with a finish as clean as Martha Stewart's mudroom.
