Daou Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2010
A dark garnet core with a bright ruby rim and thick slow moving legs. The robust bouquet of freshly picked black currants, ripe blackberries and fresh cut lilacs balance the nose beautifully with hints of nutmeg. The medium acidity on the front palate, which starts with blueberry compote and ligonberries and transitions into spice notes of clovers, is just a preview to this wine's wonderful integration of oak with fruit. The wine finishes with intense dark chocolate shavings. 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
In 2007, Daniel and Georges Daou search for the perfect terroir led them to the west mountain Adelaida area of Paso Robles, California.
