Additional Details

BODYGUARD CHARDONNAY

The Bodyguard Chardonnay embodies the quintessential style of a California chardonnay - ripe fruit, vanilla-laced oak notes and an all around rich and buttery mouthfeel. The warmer climate of California provides a deeper golden color, aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and coconut, and the flavors can range from mango and banana to butter and cream. The Chardonnay grape truly reflects where it is grown and as such the terroir expresses itself very accurately in the glass. The Bodyguard Chardonnay uses grapes from the famous Santa Barbara appellation that benefits from the proximity of Pacific Ocean. Cold fermentations are performed to maintain the aromatic precursors with a combination of French and American oak to deliver a creamy and buttery mouthfeel.

BODYGUARD RED

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.

BODYGUARD HANDMADE CUSTOM WINEGLASS SET

Bodyguard Chardonnay is a tribute to Marie Daou, who was a beacon of strength during hard times. She led her family through war and darkness and shone with a grace within chaos. In her honor, we have partnered with women around the globe who also exemplify this same strength and grace.

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.

Set includes two custom wine glasses.
