MAGNUM 2013 ESTATE MICHO
Awarded 93 points
"The 2013 Estate Micho is a heady blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon is very dark in the glass, offering blueberry, espresso, cream and dark chocolate ganache on the lush nose. Blackberry jam, tobacco, pencil lead and oregano show on the palate, where firm structure and juicy acidity leaves the mouth uplifted." —Wine Enthusiast
Created in tribute to the brothers’ dear sister Michelle, Daniel crafted a wine that showcased her favorite blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This original Estate wine showcases DAOU Mountain's natural mastery of these two Bordeaux varieties. The Cabernet provides tremendous structure while the noble Merlot grapes rounds out the mouthfeel and softens the edges.
This wine is lush with velvety tannins and intense plum flavors followed by blackberry, cassis with highlights of olives, herbs, and sweet oak. Approachable now, but it will reward you with even more pleasure after some years in the bottle.
