2014 DAOU ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
20 months in 80% new French oak
The wine displays heady aromatics of black raspberry and cassis fruits, toasted bread, Vanilla bean and hints of licorice. Full bodied with a perfect and seamless integration of tannins, this wine is broad on palate with a long finish that is every expansive. The integration of the fruit, the tannins and the acidity shows the harmony present in this beautiful nectar. The experience is never disconnected and carries beautiful symmetry from the moment the wine hits your palate until long after. A well-built Cabernet Sauvignon showing ideal varietal character and what can be accomplished on DAOU Mountain in a blockbuster vintage.
