Daou 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles

Brix26 Wines


94 points - new discovery                     
Daou is making some of the best Cabernets in Paso Robles today. Highly recommended.

94 Points Robert Parker: "Another beauty is the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, and it has impressive purity and freshness in its notes of plums, violets, currant bud and sappy herbs. Slightly softer and more approachable than its 2014 counterpart, with less obvious tannin, it's a rich, sexy Cabernet that should drink nicely on release, yet keep for over a decade."

A classically styled Cabernet with a highly perfumed nose offering black cherry, cassis, anise and black olive, together with notes of plum, graphite, dried herbs, crushed gravel and Oregon blackberry. Secondary aromas of leather, cigar box and incense reveal deep, harmonious complexity. Powerful, bold and brooding, bursting with layers of black and blue fruits. Boysenberry, blueberry, spicy currant and black plum with accents of sandalwood and toffee. Dark roast espresso, hints of vanilla and lavender potpourri. Flavors are focused in their intensity and beautifully structured, balancing power and finesse throughout the mid palate. A continuing evolution of pure fruit flavors is experienced with this wine’s amazingly long and elegant finish. Will age extremely well.

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.
Gracefully perched atop a stunning promontory at 2,200 feet, the DAOU Spanish Colonial style winery is embraced by a tangible serenity. This kind of synergy happens rarely: superlative climate and terroir, super intensive vineyard culture, and cutting edge viticultural practice. You're more likely to find it in Bordeaux than Central California.
