Winemaker Notes

This delectable and delicious offering from the temperate western hills of Paso Robles shows bright citrus, honey, and warm toast aromas accompanied by hints of tangerine and orange blossom, with notes of vanilla, lemon chiffon and nutmeg spice. These are followed by subtly nuanced traces of white peach, jasmine and hazelnut. Voluptuous and voluminous on the palate, with cascading flavors of pineapple, nectarine, sweet casaba melon and cinnamon toast, the silky texture unveiling further layers of honeysuckle, lemon meringue and cashew. Plenty of weight and substance graced with a refreshing crispness. Finishing long and clean, with rainforest floral and tropical fruit notes accented with spiced pear, toasted almonds and caramel apple.

Tasting Panel
Aromas of honeyed pear and tangerine introduce this rich, mouth-flling white. The favor profle speaks to charred marshmallow, lemon drops, and crème brûlée. Decadently good.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Creamy aromas of lemon meringue, butterscotch and toasted marshmallow are cut by zesty lemon peels and flesh on the nose of this bottling. It’s a very full expression of Chardonnay on the palate, where toast and almond tones are leveled by lemon-lime acidity and whiteflower flavors, all finishing on a caramel candy tone.

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.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
