DAOU Family Estates, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve; Paso Robles; 2019 

 April 4, 2022

Georges Daou and Daniel Daou are inseparable as brothers, friends, and visionaries. DAOU is the realization of their childhood dream and a testament to the timeless bonds of love and family. The winery is made up of a group of committed individuals dedicated to the common goals of creating first-growth wines from the Adelaida district of Paso Robles, elevating the standards and expectations of the wine industry, and developing an ideal work environment.

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, plum, and blackberry, all underlain by notes of cassis, cherry, licorice, and crushed gravel. Other aromas that begin to show are dark chocolate, coffee, and dried sage. On the palate, it is powerful, balanced, and brimming with layers of fruit and spice. Flavors of currant and black plum continue from the nose. Light accents of cedar, mocha, and herbs finish on the tongue. Firm, fine-grained tannins provide plenty of structure to support a lengthy finish of sweet cherry, leather, and toasty oak, leading to vanilla crème brûlée. In the end, the 2019 vintage is nothing short of an immensely approachable wine that will age with grace and refinement.
