2016 Daou Vineyards Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1327734 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a great way to experience the richness of Daou without hurting the bank account too much. Hedonistic aromas of candied black cherry, caramel, vanilla cake and cola lead into a rich and powerful palate that’s soft in texture and lively with exotic plum and black currant flavors. *Editors’ Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Just bottled, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is another outstanding wine. Black currants, licorice, charcoal and lead pencil notes all flow to a full-bodied, silky, polished and elegant Cabernet that's a delicious drink. Like the 2015, it was aged 11 months in 60% new French oak. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Intense cherry and red berry scents, along with hints of cracked pepper, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated red currant, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly and turn sweeter on the back half. Fine-grained tannins build on a long, spice-laced finish that leaves behind a suggestion of cherry compote. In the context of top-notch California Cabernets, this wine delivers remarkable value.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a nose of crème de cassis, plum preserves, cigar boxes, and garrique with dried herbs and sandalwood in the undercurrent. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers tons of ripe black fruits, licorice and dried herbs with a chewy frame and good balance. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)
