Thick, slow-moving tears tint the glass with a vibrant violet hue. When brought to the nose, a bouquet of fresh cut violets and blueberry fruit fills the senses. The aromas are intense yet subtle, and the palate is treated to include blackberries and black currant. The bright, fresh acidity combined with subtle tannins is backed by crushed rock-like minerality that gives it a long, lingering finish. This wine is a testament to the quality and commitment to Cabernet Sauvignon grown on DAOU Mountain.
