2018 RESERVE EYE OF THE FALCON
The 2018 DAOU Eye of the Falcon showcases the mutual power and synergy of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The deep, concentrated color is just the beginning of this massive blend. A complex, sophisticated nose offers aromas of black currant, cassis, sweet cherry and blackberry, with underlying layers of graphite, tobacco leaf, leather and wet gravel. Stunningly bright fruit flavors cascade across the palate, with impressions of juicy boysenberry, fresh blueberries and black currant accented by cedar, black plum and dried herbs.
The opulent fruit core transitions seamlessly to a robust mid-palate showing black olive, licorice and eastern spices, all finishing long and elegantly with black cherry, cocoa and plum. Powerful and rich, and polished in style and structure, this is nothing short of a blockbuster vintage.
The 2018 DAOU Unbound is a uniquely inspired blend of 52% Petite Sirah, 36% Tannat, 12% Tempranillo.
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.
2019 DAOU RESERVE ROSÉ
The 2019 DAOU Reserve Rosé is inspired by the refreshingly dry rosés that are a winemaking staple in southern France.
This delectable rosé delights the senses with a dramatic, fragrant nose of cherry, strawberry, peach, tangerine and vanilla crème brûlée, all underpinned by hints of ginger, cinnamon, almond and hibiscus. A bright, vibrant palate offers clean, luscious flavors of crisp strawberries, tangy kiwi and juicy mango. Hints ripe cherries, peaches and persimmon anticipate notes of honeysuckle, papaya, kumquat and melon. A lush, luxuriant and persistent finish is highlighted with cherry, vanilla, nectarine and mandarin orange.
