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.

Sweet red fruits on the nose—strawberry, red raspberry, a bit of plum—with light cherry tobacco. Slightly tart cherry disappears into a sweeter, jammy raspberry finish. Medium-minus acidity. Medium tannin. Reminds me more of a pinot noir than a cab. This is nice.

Shickingly good. Smooth, finishes clean. It's not a proper Cab but it's great none the less.

Ruby going garnet. Burnt black cherry, mushroom, bell pepper and mint on the nose - hint of ethyl acetate. Silky mouthfeel, fine, well-integrated tannins, flavors of dark fruit, cedar and forest floor. Bracing white pepper after it opens up a bit. Exceptionally balanced. Perfect with grilled tri-tip and roasted potatoes. Left-banky, reminds me of a nice St. Julien - oceans are oceans! Bravo Paso Robles.

Wonderful Cab. A wonderful raisin fruit characteristic. You can tell this wine is from a warm place

Solid wine. Easy drinking. Single noted fruit forward, but good, not sweet. Wish it had little more bite to it.
