2012 DAOU CELESTUS

The 2012 DAOU Celestus is decadent in its display of black and blue fruit. Aged in 50% new French Oak, it displays smoky bacon attributes backed by a full bodied richness. The tannins are silky and sweet giving to a great finish on the palate. Aging will reward this wine and showcase its true character.

The 2012 vintage rewarded us with a large and healthy crop. We dropped fruit four times throughout the growing season to balance the vines and concentrate flavors in the berries. The first heat wave in August caused sugars to progress quickly and required us to water for the first time that year. On August 24th, moderate temperatures, with daytime highs in the 80’s and mildly cool nights, slowed sugar development and allowed tannins to develop nicely. Harvest lasted from September 1st to October 7th. The 2012 vintage allowed us to make beautifully robust wines concentrated in color and with plenty of structure. Allow these wines some time to age to unlock their true potential.
