Our iconic Spanish bell cast in the year Seventeen Forty, is the inspiration behind the name of one of our most important classic Bordeaux blends. Without question, this Cabernet Franc and Merlot blend is a great example of quality and consistency on DAOU Mountain.
Quite dark in the glass, this bottling shows hearty black fruit, peppercorn and a touch of asphalt. Classic Cabernet Franc flavors show through the richness of the palate, with notes of crushed pepper and loamy soil playing up against a boysenberry backdrop.
This DAOU magnum 2012 Soul Of A Lion is a rich, powerful wine that offers up aromas of dark chocolate, sweet black fruits, burning embers and walnuts. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and layered, with an authoritative chassis of fine-grained tannins and a long, savory finish.
The 2014 Mayote is a total, jaw-dropping good blockbuster that readers need to taste. Made from an unusual blend of 56% Syrah, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak, it offers killer notes of creme de cassis, toasted spice and wild herbs in a massively concentrated, voluptuous, rounded, sexy wine that expands on the palate, while never seeming heavy or cumbersome.
The DAOU Estate Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the transcendence of DAOU Mountain as a benchmark terroir for Bordeaux varieties. Our 2016 vintage showcases the characteristics of a spectacular vintage accompanied by our distinctive DAOU Mountain pedigree - delivering a stunning experience.
Our DAOU Collector's Gift Set showcases two bottles of DAOU Estate Soul of a Lion. Our flagship wine, this beautifully concentrated Bordeaux blend offers tremendous elegance. Endowed with exquisite purity and texture, it displays classic Cabernet Sauvignon qualities, including graphite, lead pencil shavings, black currants and ash.
This Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre bottle with 16 months in 70% new French oak is DAOU tribute to Rhône varietals with notes of blackberry-balsamic reduction, black tobacco, black sage and a brooding spice character on this blend.
