2014 3.0L DAOU RESERVE SEVENTEEN FORTY
95 Points, Robert Parker; 92 Points, Vinous
An intriguing and beguiling nose of blueberry, raspberry and crème de cassis, with briary cherry pipe tobacco and hints of sweet vanilla, black licorice, cedar and dark chocolate. Lush, supple and mouth filling flavors of ripe blackberries, juicy blueberry and dried cherries are laced with toasty oak, black olive and cigar box. Focused around a core of black fruits and interwoven with exotic spice, espresso bean and sandalwood, this wine exhibits subtle power, exquisite balance, and elegant texture. It will develop and age very gracefully.
