Winemaker Notes

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.

Wine Enthusiast
Mocha cream, pencil shaving and dried herb aromas are set against a backdrop of black currant fruit in this big but balanced bottling from the Daou brothers. It’s soft on the palate, where the texture commands as much attention as the flavors, in a matrix of mouth-coating tannins that frame its cola, cocoa, black plum and cherry notes.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There's roughly a thousand cases of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, and this 100% Cabernet offers full-bodied, ripe and voluptuous notes of creme de cassis, black currants, coffee beans and ample sweet oak. It has a serious, tightly wound and tannic feel, and will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and have 10-15 years of overall longevity.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Hard and sturdy, with an earthy mix of gravel, road tar, tobacco leaf and savory berry, gaining depth and nuance on the finish. A good bet for greater reward in a year or two. Best from 2020 through 2033.

DAOU Vineyards, California
DAOU Vineyards Walk with DAOU Vineyards Winery Video

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. Hawks wheel and bank while the all-day sun caresses close planted rows of lush, emerald green vines. The 100 percent calcareous soil makes no sound as it passes out nourishment and only a gentle breeze flows up through the Templeton Gap from the Pacific. The quiet is bewitching; you want to lay down roots here, just as the four-year-old vines have done. But the sense of peace belies the serious industry at work on this 100 acre estate. No effort is spared to create the luscious varietals and blends that flow from this limited production winery. 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. Coupled with the infectious passion and gracious, family style hospitality of the Daou brothers, Georges and Daniel, the result is pure magic. The kind of magic that comes in a bottle.
