2020 Reserve Unbound
The 2020 DAOU Unbound is a daring blend of Petite Sirah, Tempranillo and Tannat. This wine’s inky dark aubergine color hints at the depth and power to come. Heady aromas of warm blackberry cobbler, blueberry compote, plum jam and sage are accompanied by suggestions of sandalwood, dried herbs, cassis, pencil shavings and leather. Meanwhile, a trace of menthol complements the dark fruit profile. The palate is powerfully structured with firm but elegant fine-grained tannins that support a solid core of pomegranate, cherry, black raspberry, plum and forest floor earthiness. Secondary layers reveal dried herbs, wet stone, toffee and black currant. A generous, persistent finish presents hints of blackberry and blueberry balanced by black olive and truffle.
Varietals: 40% Petit Sirah, 34% Tempranillo, 26% Tannat
Barrel Aging: 15 months in 50% new French Oak
2019 Reserve 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.
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot
2019 Reserve Seventeen Forty
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.
