Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from DAOU opens with a cranberry and pomegranate bouquet with hints of vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and round. The flavor profile is red fruit driven, featuring red plum, red currant, and pomegranate. I also detected hints of minerality, toasted coconut and oak. The finish is dry and moderate tannins stick around for a while. I would pair this Cab with a duck and sausage cassoulet. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has heady aromatics that affirm this is a serious wine for serious wine lovers. This wine displays black cherry, Zante currant, plum and blackberry up front, complemented by dark chocolate, tobacco leaf and cool menthol. Rounding out the nose are aromas of black olives, briarwood, fig and dried thyme. Bold and assertive on the palate with flavors initially dominated by dark fruits, Bing cherries, black raspberry, plum and pomegranate, accompanied by high note accents of cranberries and rhubarb. Midpalate delivers espresso and dried herbs with hints of fennel and cigar box all seamlessly integrated together on a structure of very fine grain, plush and ripe tannins.
