Lastly the 2019 Patrimony Cabernet Sauvignon follows suit revealing a dense purple hue as well as awesome notes of black raspberries cassis scorched earth graphite new leather vanilla and exotic spices. It's another stunning magical wine that offers full-bodied richness ultra-fine tannins and just a great great finish.v
The 2019 Patrimony Cabernet Sauvignon was made with free-run juice and matured for 30 months in 100% new French oak. It has a deep ruby color and alluring tones of truffle brown sugar and coffee to begin opening with time to very pure cassis boysenberry tobacco garrigue and aniseed. The palate is supple and fresh with surprisingly restrained mineral-laced fruits and a fan of spicy accents across the long finish. This ultra sleek elegant Cabernet evolves continually in the glass and has the harmonious structure it needs to go the distance in the cellar.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Patrimony lifts from the glass with a classic bouquet of black currant lifting hints of rosemary graphite and dusty sage. It's silky nearly creamy in feel with depths of ripe dark red fruit and sweet spice that swirl throughout. A web of fine-grained tannins engulfs the palate. While powerful and structured the impact is well-measured leaving the senses clenched in youthful poise as pretty inner florals slowly fade. What a beauty and with such an amazingly bright future. - By Eric Guido on March 2023 The Daou winery is perched within the higher elevations of the Adelaida district surrounded by estate vineyards as far as the eye can see. Unlike most Paso Robles estates these vines are almost exclusively Bordeaux varieties. Owner and winemaker Daniel Daou came to the region determined to prove that combining soils altitude and cooling Pacific influences would allow Cabernet to thrive. At the time Rhône grapes were the most common in Paso Robles yet today Cabernet Sauvignon now ranks over 50% of all planted varieties and much of that is the result of Daou?s success. These are profoundly colorful and powerful wines with an intense core of tannins and masses of rich fruit that nearly mask their hulking structures. For Daou phenolics are the primary measure of ripeness as he strives for age-worthy and highly aromatic wines. No expense is spared yet all resources are spent wisely at Daou which truly shows in the wines. Napa Bordeaux and Cabernet Sauvignon lovers should take note because while far from inexpensive these wines still offer tremendous relative value.
