2018 Soul of a Lion
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 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a true powerhouse.
Made exclusively from free-run juice and aged for 20 months in 80% new French oak barrels, this wine offers everything you desire from a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.
A deep, purple-black hue connotes lush aromas of black currant, crushed blackberry and dark chocolate with hints of licorice, violets and dried oregano. A focused, full-bodied palate boasts a powerful entry and concludes with a long, layered finish. Silky, integrated tannins provide beautiful structure, while an enchanting floral note adds freshness and precision. This wine is approachable now, but also has the grace and force to provide pleasure for decades to come.
2018 Estate 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.
2018 Estate 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.
