2019 Daou Cabernet
Highly perfumed nose of wild cherry, blackberry and currant with notes of plum, persimmon, graphite and cigar box, all underscored by a crushed limestone minerality. The palate is voluptuous and vibrant, presenting generous flavors of fresh blackberry, blueberry compote, kirsch and cassis along with espresso, dark chocolate, vanilla and hints of lavender potpourri. Firm, well rounded tannins provide unmatched structure and body, while an elegant, persistent finish lingers with suggestions of black raspberry, currant and spiced plum. An age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon that will reward careful cellaring for many years to come.
