The DAOU Reserve Eye of the Falcon showcases Winemaker Daniel Daou’s artistry with Bordeaux-style blends. True to form, the 2020 vintage is an intense yet graceful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. A rich ruby hue prefaces lively scents of blackberry, cassis, Bing cherry, plum and violet, while suggestions of leather, dried tobacco, sage and sandalwood enhance the wine’s aromatic complexity. A deep, juicy palate delivers generous flavors of black cherry, black plum and ripe blueberry with hints of kirsch, licorice, cedar and roasted almond. A soft, lengthy finish unfolds with plush tannins and lingering notes of cranberry, cocoa and graphite.
