The latest vintage of the Bodyguard Red is here, and it is incredible. The Bodyguard series is a tribute to Marie Daou, whose bright light shone through any darkness to lead her family.
2x Bodyguard Red
1x Bodyguard Red Custom Glass Set
The 2019 Bodyguard is the next masterwork by Winemaker Daniel Daou. This wine opens with a vibrant, fragrant nose of blueberry cobbler, cherry pipe tobacco, dark chocolate and espresso laced with hints of sandalwood, licorice and pencil lead. Underlying layers reveal notes of mulberry and truffle, all accented by suggestions of black currant, kirsch, bay leaf and vanilla. The palate is silky and graceful, unfolding with lavish flavors of cherry pie, plum, blackberry jam and raspberry—all converging seamlessly with earthy notes of cigar box, leather, black olive and crushed sage. Ripe, supple tannins provide structure, volume and a velvety mouthfeel, resulting in a powerful, elegant finish with suggestions of cherry, cranberry, plum and crushed stone. While approachable now, the 2019 Bodyguard is a wine that will reward patient cellaring for years to come.
HANDMADE CUSTOM GLASSES
For the Bodyguard Glass Set, we partnered with a woman artist and business owner in Canada. The art on these glasses was custom made to reflect the light that Marie Daou that shone through the darkness. Each wine glass was hand-made exclusively for DAOU with a unique cracked gold foiling, representing the lights shining through the cracks. Due to the nature of the art, each glass is unique, just like the women in our lives who give us strength within chaos.
