Additional Details

2019 Unbound

The 2019 DAOU Reserve Unbound is a daring blend of Petite Sirah, Tannat, and Tempranillo. This wine offers scintillating aromas of warm blackberry cobbler, Zante currants and blueberry compote, all underscored by hints of graphite, dark chocolate and cherry pipe tobacco. Notes of damp earth, truffle, and black olive round out the exquisitely layered and complex nose. On the palate, a mouth-filling cascade of juicy boysenberry, tangy plum, and succulent blueberry floods the senses. Under this core of ripe fruit lies cassis, wet stone, dried herbs, and espresso bean. Firm, fine-grained tannins provide ample structure and a graceful texture, leading to a magnificent, lingering finish of cherry, cranberry and cocoa.

2019 Eye of the Falcon

Inspired by the wines of Saint-Émilion, the 2019 DAOU Reserve Seventeen Forty presents a harmonious marriage of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The nose is rich and refined, revealing scents of ripe boysenberry, fragrant plum, sweet cherry, cocoa and pomegranate. Subtle notes of crème de cassis, black olive, pencil lead and sandalwood underpin the lush fruit aromas. Flavors of blackberry, cherry, dark chocolate and espresso dominate the palate, accented by hints of truffle, tobacco leaf and dried flowers. This wine is beautifully structured, with supple tannins that provide the backbone for a long, vibrant finish of black plum, currant, loganberry and mocha. While eminently approachable now, this 2019 vintage will reward careful cellaring for years to come.

2019 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The classically styled 2019 DAOU Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon showcases Paso Robles as a world-class region for Bordeaux-style wines. It opens with a highly perfumed nose of black cherry, mulberry, plum and Oregon blackberry, all underlain by notes of cassis, kirsch, licorice, and crushed gravel. Secondary aromas of dark chocolate, coffee and dried sage reveal an elegant complexity. On the palate, it is powerful, balanced and brimming with layers of fruit and spice. Tempting flavors of Zante currant, boysenberry and black plum anticipate accents of cigar box, mocha, crushed herbs and pencil shavings. Firm, fine-grained tannins provide ample structure to support a lengthy finish of sweet cherry, leather, toasty oak and vanilla crème brûlée. In the end, the 2019 vintage is nothing short of an immensely approachable wine that will age with grace and refinement.
