    Winemaker's Notes:

    Rich deep dark berry color with creamy mocha-espresso flavors is the first impression of this wine. The tannins are well-integrated with the fruit and create a long finish that keeps going. It's full-bodied with a saturated finish while accompanied by bright acidity and infused by black current and cooked blueberries. Balanced and intense, it showcases what Bordeaux varieties can perform when managed correctly.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Starting with their straight Cabernet Release, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It has classic blackcurrant, tobacco leaf and earthy qualities in its full-bodied profile, and it stays lively and fresh, with notable purity of fruit. It will evolve gracefully for upward of a decade.

    The Wine Advocate

    A top wine in its price category; rifined black currant aromas and flavors; well-built on the palate; fine persistent finish.

    A masterful cabernet with lots to offer! Beautiful ripe fruit that lasts from start to finish. Drinks really well now. Daou is a one of California's top and yet to be known wineries, except by insiders. (tasted: August 28, 2014)
