Daou Vineyards Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The winery is over the top to visit. Unfortunately, the wine is just a little over average. I bought this at Costco for $20 after a $30 tasting at the hill top winery. C'mon, Daou, be reasonable.

Ripe and juicy with a rich, lush finish. Definitely some toasty notes. Big red fruit notes. #cabernetsauvignon #daou #pasorobles #pasowine #california

Great free run wine with mild tannins especially for a 2014 that blends well with the acidity and cherry fruit - traditional cab drinkers looking for that tannin grip may not care for this but this a style that I really like

Black cherries and figs all the time with chocolate on the palate along with the above fruit. It is very ripe and very fruity. Not my thing.

Industrial rubber nose. New tire. Juicy palate of raspberry and blueberry. A little disjointed, but pleasant.

Wonderful Cab. A wonderful raisin fruit characteristic. You can tell this wine is from a warm place

Hmmm. Could be an off bottle but getting a bit too much stewed fruit up front for my liking. Cherry and nice integration in the back palate though.

Very easy to drink right after opening - could be a little more tannic, but not too sweet nor too big. Just right.

Here is my Friday's Cabernet fix. A nice color of dark ruby with a purplish rim. Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, plums, vanilla, oak, spices, espresso, licorice, earth, light alcohol, cloves, herbs, dark chocolates, vinaigrette and black pepper. Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs. Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, vanilla, leather and tobacco. Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins, tangy cranberries and spices. This is a good Cabernet from Paso Robles. Well balanced with mild complexity. Spicy with a nice mouthfeel. I had it almost a year ago and this time I really liked it. I guess it was just too young then. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (one hour). A good sipping wine by the porch. I paired it with a cheese plate, fruits and crackers. 14.2% alcohol by volume.
