2020 Reserve Chardonnay
The intensely fragrant 2020 DAOU Reserve Chardonnay offers enticing aromas of Asian pear, honeysuckle, Granny Smith apple, smoky oak and warm buttered toast. Hints of pineapple, vanilla cream, hazelnut and ginger round out the luscious nose. A voluptuous, succulent palate displays flavors of lemon meringue pie, pineapple, toasted almonds, and honeydew melon. Subtle notes of nutmeg, baked spiced apples and nectarine unfold along a rich, silky texture. This fleshy, weighty Chardonnay ultimately finishes long and clean, with delightfully lingering flavors of lemon chiffon, tangerine and vanilla bean.
2020 Reserve Seventeen Forty
Inspired by the classics of Saint-Émilion, the 2020 DAOU Reserve Seventeen Forty is a Cabernet Franc driven wine with a harmonious complement of Merlot. Beguiling aromas of blackberry cobbler, raspberry, crème de cassis and cherry pipe tobacco anticipate hints of toasty oak, black licorice and pencil shaving. Lush and full bodied, this wine bestows rich flavors of cherry, black plum, dark chocolate and blueberry compote with lovely accents of Zante currant, graphite and cinnamon. Solid structure and fine-grained tannins support a lengthy, focused finish, leaving notes of plum and boysenberry underscored by cocoa and black truffle.
2020 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Each year, the DAOU Estate Cabernet Sauvignon showcases what is possible from DAOU Mountain in the masterful hands of Winemaker Daniel Daou. The 2020 vintage offers a highly perfumed nose of wild cherry, blackberry and currant with notes of plum, persimmon, graphite and cigar box, all underscored by a crushed limestone minerality. The palate is voluptuous and vibrant, presenting generous flavors of fresh blackberry, blueberry compote, kirsch and cassis along with espresso, dark chocolate, vanilla and hints of lavender potpourri. Firm, well rounded tannins provide unmatched structure and body, while an elegant, persistent finish lingers with suggestions of black raspberry, currant and spiced plum. An age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon that will reward careful cellaring for many years to come.
2021 Estate Sauvignon Blanc
The 2021 DAOU Estate Sauvignon Blanc represents the lighter side of Bordeaux varieties grown on DAOU Mountain. This wine exhibits classic varietal aromas of lemongrass, gooseberry, grapefruit and quince, all rounded out with notes of flint, acacia, wet stone and sweet oak. The palate is crisp and clean, showing abundant flavors of key lime, honeysuckle, white peach and kiwi accented by Crenshaw melon, green apple and dragon fruit. A long, generous finish lingers with hints of pineapple, melon and passionfruit.
