Surprisingly nice for the price point. Full of cherries on the nose. Drinks like a much more expensive bottle of wine.

Exciting to taste the '15 vintage. Young, but beautiful. Will be a great wine two years from now. Rating upped from 9.1 11/5/16. Rating re-affirmed 3/30/17. Still young and powerful, but more settled and starting to shine. WS 93pts 10/2017.

Lush paso fruit, sweet smoke, licorice flavors. Great cab for sub 25

A lot of layers; black raspberry, cassis, spice and licorice. This young Cab will only get better. Picking up on chocolate and plum too. Chewy texture.

The winery is over the top to visit. Unfortunately, the wine is just a little over average. I bought this at Costco for $20 after a $30 tasting at the hill top winery. C'mon, Daou, be reasonable.

Ripe and juicy with a rich, lush finish. Definitely some toasty notes. Big red fruit notes. #cabernetsauvignon #daou #pasorobles #pasowine #california

Very smooth and balanced. Deep garnet color with hints of plums and licorice. Not too fruity, and nicely mellowed tannins.

Tonight we had guests over and we opened the 2013 Daou Cabernet Sauvignon which was an enjoyable bottle of wine. Great QPR.

On the nose there is blackberry, black cherry, cassis, menthol and dry dusty soil.

On the palate there are notes of black cherry, blackberry, cassis, herbal notes, licorice, smokey oak and wet clean soil.

The wine is a medium to full bodied wine with medium + acidity and medium smooth tannins. A nice start to the night that was enjoyed by all. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🖒

Great free run wine with mild tannins especially for a 2014 that blends well with the acidity and cherry fruit - traditional cab drinkers looking for that tannin grip may not care for this but this a style that I really like

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope everyone is having a beautiful day with family and friends? I am very thankful for each and every one of you and sharing fine wine together.

Today I have opened the 2012 Daou Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy with my family. I do want to not that this was in the magnum format.

On the nose there is blackberry, black cherry, black currant, black pepper and nice soil notes.

The palate leads to fruit forward beautiful black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, sweet oak, sweet tobacco, roses and wet farm soil.

This wine has full bodied full mouth feel with a nice bright medium + acidity and smooth medium tannins. The finish one that is long and very pleasing.

Please have a wonderful rest of your day and be thankful for the gifts we receive every day.
