The 2019 DAOU Estate Cabernet Franc reveals how this classic Bordeaux variety excels on DAOU Mountain, where the soils are reminiscent of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. The 2019 vintage presents aromas of black plum and blueberry with hints of crushed stone, violet, lilac and graphite. A full-bodied palate explodes with fresh fruit flavors. While intense and structured, this wine also shows tremendous balance and elegance. The result is a standout Cabernet Franc that promises to evolve favorably over the next decade and beyond.
