Just delicious! Brambly big berries. Complex and soft yet full and voluptuous. Just like a woman. And that scent...

Two occasions to open this special wine - it’s Father’s Day, and in addition, it is my 1,000th wine in Delectable. 😎 After an hour of decanting this wine is smooth and silky, well balanced, and to my surprise very soft tannins. Well integrated. Ready to drink, and yet ready to sleep ten more years as well. Complex layers of fruit. Delicious. Daou can take on any Napa cabs and shine. Revisited 8/27/19 at Daou Vineyards - rating affirmed.

Från den högst belägna kustnära vingården i Cali. Rik och imponerande elegant US Cab, ingen fruktbomb. De klassiska Bordeaux-dragen som svarta vinbär, blyerts, kaffe, sötlakrits, kardemumma, mint osv. finns där. Men extra snyggt inkapslat av en klarhet och balans. En av de mer mineraliska viner jag druckit. Otrolig längd. Fantastisk munkänsla. Sanslöst god. Värd 1400 kr = ja.
