Solid Daou. But very young wine. Will be interesting to see the fruit forwardness integrate and mellow over time.

In hills of Paso Robles, not far from Hearst castle, there is a man with a Homeric vision. His name is Daniel Daou and he is devoting his life to creating outstanding Cabernet’s. Deep red with complex dark berry nose, aged for 11 months on French oak (60% new). On the palate blackberry, tart cherry and a licorice twist, gentle background spice with savory fine tannins. Medium+ finish ending with cacao and earthy herbs. Great value. I also tried the Reserve which is something special.

Woah. Amazing. Bring to parties wine. Good with anything or alone. Rich berry flavors. Very smooth.

2016 Costco $19. Full body, doesn’t take much time to open up. Ok value.

Agree with Vinous, and great with a NY Strip and roasted Brussel sprouts. Has some nice depth for a high production wine.
