Be Daring. Be Curious.
This wine belongs to DAOU’s Curious Collection, featuring three-limited edition wines that reflect a spirit of experimentation and innovation under Winemaker Daniel Daou. Blend 49A takes an unconventional path to harmony with an eclectic cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Tannat and Petite Sirah. This wine offers an opulent and inviting nose of plum, cocoa, kirsch and black currant with a whisper of crème de menthe. Deeper layers reveal black olive, fennel and desert sage highlighted by toasty oak. A plush, seamless texture delivers succulent flavors of Oregon blackberry, wild boysenberry, pomegranate and cranberry. Suggestions of cardamom and crushed herb add complementary spice accents to underlying black cherry and dark chocolate. A long, persistent finish replays cherry and plum notes with hints of sandalwood.
Blend: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Tempranillo, 14% Tannat, 4% Petit Sirah
