Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black currant and black cherry bouquet with hints of strawberry and graphite. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is smooth, velvety, and balanced. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and coffee blend with notes of mocha and oak. We also detected hints of acai berry, minerality and sage. The finish is dry, and its dusty well-managed tannins are nicely prolonged. The Panel would pair this Cab with veal medallions. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The classically styled 2019 DAOU Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon showcases Paso Robles as a world-class region for Bordeaux-style wines. It opens with a highly perfumed nose of black cherry, mulberry, plum and Oregon blackberry, all underlain by notes of cassis, kirsch, licorice, and crushed gravel. Secondary aromas of dark chocolate, coffee and dried sage reveal an elegant complexity. On the palate, it is powerful, balanced and brimming with layers of fruit and spice. Tempting flavors of Zante currant, boysenberry and black plum anticipate accents of cigar box, mocha, crushed herbs and pencil shavings. Firm, fine-grained tannins provide ample structure to support a lengthy finish of sweet cherry, leather, toasty oak and vanilla crème brûlée.
