2021 Chemin De Fleurs

Inspired by the iconic white wines of France’s Rhône Valley, Chemin de Fleurs is a classic blend of three varieties—Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Viognier. The 2021 vintage offers tantalizing and vibrant aromas of pineapple, banana, vanilla bean and freshly sliced pear. Spicy notes of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon complement floral notes of honeysuckle and star jasmine along with nuances of green apple, casaba melon and fig. The palate is silky, voluminous and mouthwatering, delivering generous flavors of mango, papaya, pineapple and white peach accented with buttered toast, wet stone, kiwi and ginger. A lovely, lingering finish of vanilla, baking spice, lemon chiffon and honey clover rounds out this exceptional vintage.

2021 Reserve Rosé

The 2021 DAOU Reserve Rosé comes from special Grenache fruit selected by Winemaker Daniel Daou. True to form, this wine displays a lovely pale apricot color in the traditional style of Provençale rosés. An exuberant nose offers tantalizing aromas of peach, watermelon, strawberry, kiwi and toasty oak. Subtle hints of cranberry and rhubarb are accented with rose petal to round out the aroma profile. The palate is rich with flavors of pink grapefruit, Rainier cherry, persimmon and papaya, while underlying notes of tangerine and mango contribute freshness and zest. A remarkably clean finish lingers with lasting notes of peach sorbet, apricot, vanilla bean and strawberry.

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.
