Additional Details

2020 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.

2021 Reserve Rosé

The 2021 DAOU Reserve Rosé comes from special Grenache fruit selected by Winemaker Daniel Daou. True to form, this wine displays a lovely pale apricot color in the traditional style of Provençale rosés. An exuberant nose offers tantalizing aromas of peach, watermelon, strawberry, kiwi and toasty oak. Subtle hints of cranberry and rhubarb are accented with rose petal to round out the aroma profile. The palate is rich with flavors of pink grapefruit, Rainier cherry, persimmon and papaya, while underlying notes of tangerine and mango contribute freshness and zest. A remarkably clean finish lingers with lasting notes of peach sorbet, apricot, vanilla bean and strawberry.

2019 Eye of the Falcon

The 2019 DAOU Reserve Eye of the Falcon is a joyous marriage of two beloved Bordeaux varieties—Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The nose offers vivid aromas of blackberry, cassis, bing cherry and saddle leather. Subtle notes of mulberry, kirsch, pencil shavings and milk chocolate are accented by crushed dried flowers and a suggestion of mint. On the palate, a torrent of juicy, concentrated fruit flavors includes boysenberry, plum, black currant and blueberry, all graced by hints of sage, sandalwood and black raspberry. The mouthfeel is layered, harmonious and firmly structured with a silky texture. Bright fruit ultimately yields to richer layers of exotic spice, cigar box and fennel, concluding with a long, elegant finish.
