This summer, the spotlight is on reconnecting with the people we’ve been missing and returning to the life we have been yearning for. As calendars fill with backyard BBQs and long overdue glasses of wine with friends, we are reinvigorated with the promise of fun, life, and being together.
$195 | 3 Bottles, 2019 Reserve Eye of the Falcon + Wine Key
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
