2014 DAOU ESTATE SOUL OF A LION
22 months in 100% new French oak
The 2014 DAOU Estate Soul of a Lion shows beautiful depth of color. This inky purple wine is loaded with aromas of plums, crème de cassis, garrigue and exotic flowers. On the palate, the wine is layered with velvety tannins and shows a unique elegance while being accompanied by extreme intensity and power. Nuanced vanilla bean, toasted spice, graphite, licorice and lead pencil shaving like aromas round out the spectrum flavors. Insanely concentrated, it has a gorgeous harmonious length that extends into a seamless finish which lingers on the senses. Armed with a great tannin structure, it will certainly benefit from laying down for several years.
83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
