2019 Daou Cabernet Sauvignon
In the golden, oak-studded hills of Paso Robles' fabled west side, not far from William Randolph Hearst's magnificent castle, there is a man with a Homeric vision. His name is Daniel Daou and he is devoting his life and every imaginable resource to creating, first and foremost, a Cabernet Sauvignon that rivals the very best in the world.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Dark ruby with purple edges in color, the wine opens with floral perfume, blackberry, baking spice, cassis notes of graphite and a hint of mint. The palate is medium to full bodied but very well structured, seamless with silky tannins elegant flavors and just enough acidity to give this wine lift and persistence as it finishes long with lovely spices, and lingering dark fruit. Year after year Daou Vineyards consistently crafts this excellent Cabernet Sauvignon and at an amazing value!
