The 2021 DAOU Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is emblematic of Paso Robles as a world-classic region for Bordeaux-style wines. Intense purple-red hues foreshadow deep aromas of black fruit, pomegranate, tobacco, mocha and bay leaf. Trailing notes of clove, nutmeg and vanilla emerge as the wine opens up in the glass. Opulent textures expand across the palate with flavors of red fruit, blueberry and chocolate-covered raspberry. The overall experience is fresh and rich, concluding with velvety tannins and impressive length.
