DAOU Vineyards & Winery are honored to share the following feedback from leading wine authorities.
"In short, these are gorgeous wines that continue to show what's possible with Bordeaux varieties from Paso Robles."
"This estate in Paso Robles, California, creates terroir-driven and precision-based wines directed by its two owner/brothers, who are both successful engineers. The Daou’s exhaustive hunt for premium soil in Paso has resulted in wines that rival top Bordeaux bottlings, and is putting Paso on the global radar for collectible reds."
"This estate was created in 2010 by brothers Daniel and Georges Daou, and it lies high up off Adelaida Road. This estate is unquestionably leading the charge with regards to Bordeaux varieties in Paso Robles."
"Paso Robles is currently one of the hottest regions in California, and it’s not just the weather. While there were just a relative handful of highly ambitious wineries here at the turn of the century, that number has been growing steadily."
"A growing number of Paso Robles vintners are proving that world-class Cabernet is not exclusive to Napa Valley, and this bottling from DAOU emphatically makes the point."
"Elsewhere across the state, there are other nooks and crannies where Cabernet is beginning to find its footing and, in some cases, to excel. This spreading diversity promises a bright future ahead. Paso Robles, for example, is showing steady gains, delivering quality that matches volume and producing stars such as Daou Vineyards, from brothers Georges and Daniel Daou."
"Super dark with a ton of bitter chocolate and cocoa powder, plus smoke and a hint of gunpowder. This has a great balance of full, powdery tannins and earthy power. Long, really complex finish."
