2016 DAOU Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - Clone 412
Clone 412 originates from the Bordeaux region of Gironde. Clone 412 was first added to France’s accredited clonal registry in 2000 and was officially registered in 2003. Today, it is one of the most widely planted clones in Bordeaux, prized for producing wines of balance, fullness and aging potential.
Opaque ruby in color, this vibrant and intense Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberry, cassis and luxardo cherry, with underlying notes of sandalwood, incense, and dried wild sage and oregano. On the palate, this wine delivers an impressive range of fruit character, from ripe blackcurrant to boyensberry and olallieberry, echoing the deep, rich profile of the bouquet. Supple tannins balanced by vivacious acidity lead to a lengthy finish.
