Daou Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Wine EnthusiastThe Daou brothers have become increasingly known for their rich, unctuous and lavish high-end wines, but this bottling offers a taste of that opulence for just $30. Plump blueberry and soft, cedar-like spice scents show on the nose, while the palate bursts with black cherry, dark chocolate and caramel flavors, powered by ample acidity. It will age gracefully, but is already delicious.
Wine SpectatorPlump and juicy, this seamless effort is focused on red berry and jammy notes, showing plush tannins, depth of flavor and length. Ultraripe but stays within bounds. Drink now through 2030. 20,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe straight 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon should be another outstanding vintage of this cuvee and it has full-bodied richness, beautiful concentration and lots of dark chocolate, plum and smoked herb aromas and flavors. It has more obvious structure than the 2014 did at this stage as well.
