Add to Wishlist

A fantastic Red Blend from Paso Robles that we highly recommend! From Daou Vineyards, one of Paso's leading wineries.

93 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "A value-priced release from this team that has delivered the goods in every vintage I've tasted, the Daou Bodyguard has a rich, medium to full-bodied, textured profile to go with exotic blue fruits, notes of mint, flowers, and candied violets, silky tannins, and a great finish. A blend of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah, it's for the fruit lovers out there."

The 2019 Bodyguard is the next masterwork by Winemaker Daniel Daou. This wine opens with a vibrant, fragrant nose of blueberry cobbler, cherry pipe tobacco, dark chocolate and espresso laced with hints of sandalwood, licorice and pencil lead. Underlying layers reveal notes of mulberry and truffle, all accented by suggestions of black currant, kirsch, bay leaf and vanilla. The palate is silky and graceful, unfolding with lavish flavors of cherry pie, plum, blackberry jam and raspberry—all converging seamlessly with earthy notes of cigar box, leather, black olive and crushed sage. Ripe, supple tannins provide structure, volume and a velvety mouthfeel, resulting in a powerful, elegant finish with suggestions of cherry, cranberry, plum and crushed stone. While approachable now, the 2019 Bodyguard is a wine that will reward patient cellaring for years to come. Blend: 58% Petit Verdot, 42% Petite Sirah
