Thick slow moving tears tint the glass with a vibrant violet hue. When brought to the nose, a bouquet of fresh cut violets and blueberry fruit fills the senses. The aromas are intense yet subtle and the palate is treated to include blackberries and blackcurrant. The bright, fresh acidity combined with subtle tannins is backed by crushed rock-like minerality that gives it a long, lingering finish. This wine is a testament to the quality and commitment to Cabernet Sauvignon grown on Daou Mountain.

Wine AdvocateTasted out of barrel, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve shows the vintage's more forward, supple and textured style. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and rich, it offers impressive black and blue fruits, graphite and crushed rock-like minerality in its rounded, decadent personality. It will be ready to go on release and evolve nicely through 2022.

Wine SpectatorThis version presents a strong mix of cedar, toast and coconut-laced oak flavors, joined by ripe, fleshy currant and red berry notes. Ends with a graceful, integrated finish. Drink now through 2020. 7,500 cases made.
