Wine Review: This opaque and deep purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black cherry and red currant bouquet with hints of tobacco leaf, vanilla and rose petal. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is smooth, velvety, and wow! The flavor profile is a concentrated blend of black raspberry and black currant with notes of oak and stony minerality. We also detected hints of spice and dried herbs. The finish is dry, and its dusty tannins are sticky and very extended. The Panel would just drink this delicious Cab on its own. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Each year, the DAOU Estate Cabernet Sauvignon showcases what is possible from DAOU Mountain fruit in the masterful hands of Winemaker Daniel Daou. Now comes the 2019 vintage, which is arguably our best Estate Cabernet Sauvignon to date. This wine presents remarkable texture and density, revealing notes of crème de cassis, black cherry, blackberry, and tobacco with undertones of mineral and earth. Full bodied and well-structured, this wine maintains its freshness and elegance into a long finish.
