DAOU Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2018 12 Bottles
DAOU Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2018. The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has heady aromatics that affirm this is a serious wine for serious wine lovers. This wine displays black cherry, Zante currant, plum and blackberry up front, complemented by dark chocolate, tobacco leaf and cool menthol. Rounding out the nose are aromas of black olives, briarwood, fig, and dried thyme. Bold and assertive on the palate with flavors initially dominated by dark fruits, Bing cherries, black raspberry, plum, and pomegranate, accompanied by high note accents of cranberries and rhubarb. Midpalate delivers espresso and dried herbs with hints of fennel and cigar box all seamlessly integrated together on a structure of very fine grain, plush and ripe tannins. A wine of complexity and depth with a purity of fruit and subtle layers of flavors and texture that harmonize and enhance. This wine constitutes a journey of the senses that begins with power and finishes with elegance and style. Aromas of black plum, black olive and violet lead into a texturally dynamic palate loaded with ripe but not overdone black currant, baking spice and vanilla flavors. Strong acidity drives the finish. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is very promising, revealing a youthfully primary bouquet of currants and plums that's already integrated its new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, richly structured and generous, with a sun-kissed core of fruit and a dry, fine-grained finish. I'm looking forward to seeing it from bottle. COMMENTARY: In the wine business, we often bandy terms about that may make sense to professionals, but not to everyday consumers. One of the phrases I often here is classic wines. What is a classic wine? Regarding Cabernet Sauvignons, Napa Valley often gets tagged with this designation. Attributes such as black fruits, savory spices, plenty of tannins are generally in the mix. The 2017 Daou Cabernet Sauvignon, from Paso Robles, has many of these characteristics. TASTING NOTES: This is a firm, yet well-balanced wine. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, savory spices, oak, and firm tannins should pair it beautifully with a seared hanger steak. (Tasted: December 4, 2018, San Francisco, CA). Bottle two weeks ago, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon offers classic notes of blackcurrants, tobacco, licorice, and smoke herbs, and as with the Pessimist, its a whole lot of wine for not much buck.
