Daou Vineyards, Patrimony Caves des Lions, Paso Robles
Abundant rainfall combined with moderate temperatures and extended hang times resulted in the latest harvest on record. The winter rains yielded a healthy cover crop that replenished the soil’s micronutrient stores. The growing season was perfect with temperatures hovering in the 80s and 90s, and not a single day reaching 100 degrees in the vineyard. The fruit arrived at the winery in exquisite condition with small, pure and unblemished berries. The 2019 vintage is marked by elegance, intensity and fine acidity, all combining to promise excellent longevity and staying power.
52% Cabernet Sauvignon | 48% Cabernet Franc
Aged 27 months in 100% new French oak
A stunning marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. One cannot but be taken by the über-dark color of this wine. Yet when the first sip is taken, an unexpected profile emerges from the glass with elegance and freshness accompanied by a wealth of minerality. The nose explodes with aromas of cassis, cured meats, coffee, licorice, dark chocolate and spice. This full-bodied and flawlessly balanced wine will keep you thinking for a long time with a finish that does not stop.
