Winemaker Notes: 2014 Estate Soul of a Lion

The 2014 DAOU Estate Soul of a Lion shows beautiful depth of color. This inky purple wine is loaded with aromas of plums, crème de cassis, garrigue and exotic flowers. On the palate, the wine is layered with velvety tannins and shows a unique elegance while being accompanied by extreme intensity and power. Nuanced vanilla bean, toasted spice, graphite, licorice, and lead pencil shaving-like aromas round out the spectrum of flavors. Insanely concentrated, it has a gorgeous harmonious length that extends into a seamless finish which lingers on the senses. Armed with a great tannin structure, it will certainly benefit from laying down for several years.

Winemaker Notes: 2014 Estate Mayote


The 2014 Estate Mayote is a "tour de force" that showcases the best of DAOU Mountain. This blockbuster wine is intensely pigmented and concentrated in aromas. Infused with crème de cassis, toasted spice and wild herbs in an uber-concentrated blend that is voluptuous yet smooth and elegant on the palate. Crème de Cassis greets the palate in a bold performance that includes vanilla bean, violets, graphite, tobacco leaf, ash and licorice. The flavors come together for a finish that is intense yet elegant. This wine will be remembered for a long time and will bring increased reward and pleasure with a few years of aging.

Historical Harvest Notes:

While winemaker Daniel Daou can tell you what is special about every vintage he produces, the 2014 vintage in particular will always stand out to him:

"It was a perfect vintage. The wines are the ultimate expression of power without sacrificing any elegance."

- Daniel Daou, co-founder & winemaker
