The name Mayote is a tribute to the mother of Georges and Daniel Daou, signifying her enduring love and strength. Each year, this powerful blend showcases the synergy between Bordeaux and Rhône varieties grown on DAOU Mountain. True to form, the 2018 vintage boasts an opaque purple-black color with explosive aromas of violet, lilac, boysenberry, black cherry and blackberry pie. The palate delivers prodigious flavors of black and blue fruits with hints of vanilla bean, pencil shaving, licorice, cigar ash and chocolate-covered cherries. The tannins are silky and well integrated, allowing the wine’s beautiful freshness and complexity to resonate across a long, enduring finish.
