Aromas of black currants and crushed blueberries invite you to explore the complexity of depth of this alluring wine. Black plums and blackberries greet your palate as a revue or flavors follow: peppercorns, cedar box, tobacco leaves, ash, licorice, and spice all make their debut and linger just long enough for you to know they were there. Bright acidity and firm, open tannin combine to create a seamless texture that balances intense fruit with DAOU Mountain structure.
