DAOU Mountain once again blessed us with a beautiful harvest this fall. We are grateful for the fruits of our labor, and for the opportunity to share them with you this holiday season. Let us gather and celebrate what matters most this season: love, hope and family.
Garys' Pinot Noir Tasting Notes
The 2017 vintage is sultry, seductive and sophisticated on the nose, offering aromas of bright cherry, pipe tobacco and lavender. The palate is silky and vibrant with flavors of barberry, rose hips and baking spices. Assertive yet understated notes of gooseberry and moist earth emphasize the harmony of soil and fruit, creating a tension of flavors and textures working in harmony.
Solomon Hills Pinot Noir Tasting Notes
The 2017 vintage offers floral aromas of strawberry, violet and rose petal with accents of warm cocoa, raspberry and cardamom spice. The palate is sensual and seductive, showing flavors of dried cherries, cranberries and rhubarb underscored with notes of white truffle, damp forest floor and lychee. A velvety texture bestows lingering layers of red cherry and pomegranate through a long, persistent finish.
Reserve Chardonnay Tasting Notes
This delectable and delicious offering from the temperate western hills of Paso Robles shows bright citrus, honey, and warm toast aromas accompanied by hints of tangerine and orange blossom, with notes of vanilla, lemon chiffon and nutmeg spice. These are followed by subtly nuanced traces of white peach, jasmine and hazelnut. Voluptuous and voluminous on the palate, with cascading flavors of pineapple, nectarine, sweet casaba melon and cinnamon toast, the silky texture unveiling further layers of honeysuckle, lemon meringue and cashew. Plenty of weight and substance graced with a refreshing crispness. Finishing long and clean, with rainforest floral and tropical fruit notes accented with spiced pear, toasted almonds and caramel apple.
