2018 ESTATE SOUL OF A LION

Soul of a Lion is the crown jewel of DAOU, and an emblem of our quest to produce unsurpassed Cabernet Sauvignon from the terroir of DAOU Mountain.

The 2018 Soul of a Lion is the kind of awe-inspiring, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon that Georges and Daniel envisioned when they first began researching the terroir of DAOU Mountain. This wine displays all the hallmarks of its cooler growing season—richness, elegance and balance. A dark, purple-black hue foreshadows the experience to come. Intense aromas of lilac, violet and spice swirl amid a deep, complex bouquet. The palate bursts with prodigious flavors of blueberry, boysenberry, plum, vanilla bean and chocolate-covered cherry, all underlain by striking minerality. Silky, integrated tannins unwind into an impossibly long finish, revealing both the power and finesse of its DAOU Mountain provenance.

2018 MAYOTE

The name Mayote is a tribute to the mother of Georges and Daniel Daou, signifying her enduring love and strength. Each year, this powerful blend showcases the synergy between Bordeaux and Rhône varieties grown on DAOU Mountain. True to form, the 2018 vintage boasts an opaque purple-black color with explosive aromas of violet, lilac, boysenberry, black cherry and blackberry pie. The palate delivers prodigious flavors of black and blue fruits with hints of vanilla bean, pencil shaving, licorice, cigar ash and chocolate-covered cherries. The tannins are silky and well integrated, allowing the wine’s beautiful freshness and complexity to resonate across a long, enduring finish.

2018 MICHO

The 2018 vintage marks our finest Estate Micho to date, advancing our signature marriage of two iconic Bordeaux varieties—Merlot and Cabernet. An opaque, purple-black color leads the way, followed by a mesmerizing, multilayered bouquet that bursts from the glass with abundant aromas of blue and black fruits. A full-bodied palate is enveloped by flavors of blueberry, blackberry, black currant and vanilla with hints of pencil shavings and chocolate-covered dark cherry. This wine is beautifully fresh and focused, all while showing a complex earthiness backed by mineral notes. The finish is long, lingering and unending—affirming this wine as a blockbuster that will reward careful cellaring for decades to come.

2019 CUVEE LIZZY

The 2019 DAOU Estate Cuvée Lizzy is a signature Bordeaux-style blend from Winemaker Daniel Daou. This wine bursts from the glass with a floral bouquet of lilac, violet and cigar box. A full-bodied palate displays phenomenal texture and impressive fruit quality, revealing deep flavors of blackberry, blueberry and black currant. The entire experience is seamless through the finish, backed by a fine structure that will enable the wine to age beautifully in the bottle.
