The 2018 DAOU Unbound is a uniquely inspired blend of Petite Sirah (52%), Tannat (36%) and Tempranillo (11%). An inky, dark purple hue foreshadows heady aromatics of warm blueberry cobbler, elderberry and black currants. A structured yet elegant palate reveals luxurious layers of blue and black fruit flavors. Ripe plum and black raspberry notes are accented with hints of cigar box, crushed herbs, truffle, lilac and sandalwood, while silky, fine-grained tannins provide ample support for the abundance of voluptuous fruit. A long, generous finish punctuates an experience that is positively sumptuous and pleasurable from beginning to end.
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.
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.
