The 2020 DAOU Estate Malbec comes exclusively from our DAOU Mountain terroir and is a benchmark for Bordeaux varieties from the Adelaida District. Lovely fruit-driven aromas evoke plum, boysenberry, blueberry, cherry and strawberry jam on buttered toast. Accompanying floral scents of violet and rose petal are interlaced with coffee, mocha and a whisper of peppermint. Sumptuous and exuberant on the palate, this wine bursts with juicy flavors of cherry, cranberry and plum accented by dried strawberry, blueberry compote and crushed herbs. The finish is graceful and lengthy, predominating with cherry and blackberry while imparting a touch of sandalwood.
