2018 DAOU ESTATE MICHO MAGNUM

$165

The 2018 vintage marks our finest Estate Micho to date, advancing our signature marriage of two iconic Bordeaux varieties—Merlot and Cabernet. An opaque, purple-black color leads the way, followed by a mesmerizing, multilayered bouquet that bursts from the glass with abundant aromas of blue and black fruits. A full-bodied palate is enveloped by flavors of blueberry, blackberry, black currant and vanilla with hints of pencil shavings and chocolate-covered dark cherry. This wine is beautifully fresh and focused, all while showing a complex earthiness backed by mineral notes. The finish is long, lingering and unending—affirming this wine as a blockbuster that will reward careful cellaring for decades to come.
