Dark berry, burnt espresso. Ok right out of the bottle, but worth decanting. Hard to beat for the price. Grill happy Cab.

Very ripe example of #cabernetsaugvinon from #pasoroblescab not bad for the price, but not great either.

Solid Daou. But very young wine. Will be interesting to see the fruit forwardness integrate and mellow over time.

In hills of Paso Robles, not far from Hearst castle, there is a man with a Homeric vision. His name is Daniel Daou and he is devoting his life to creating outstanding Cabernet’s. Deep red with complex dark berry nose, aged for 11 months on French oak (60% new). On the palate blackberry, tart cherry and a licorice twist, gentle background spice with savory fine tannins. Medium+ finish ending with cacao and earthy herbs. Great value. I also tried the Reserve which is something special.

Fruity cab with a smooth finish. Paired with rack of wild boar.

Luscious and fruity, berries and plum, one degree shy of bomb territory. Balanced by tannins and just a bit of acid but no minerals, no earth, no cigar box, no pencil lead, no mint, no oakiness, no leather, no barnyard and (arguably) no sophistication. Still, a quite competent example of Central Coast California Cabernet and a very pleasant quaff. Received this bottle as a Christmas gift but wouldn’t hesitate to buy it. Enjoyed the 2016 vintage with lamb chops and peas.

Bought at joy wine and liquor. Was sold to us as an okay wine but does not even have a hint of that. Sweet, and unremarkable. Would not buy again. Had one glass. Will use the rest as cooking wine.

Fruit forward on the nose. Cherries. Young and acidic. Gets better with air. Would have liked a little more oak. Not bad for $23 but I've had better.
