Daou Soul Of A Lion 2014
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Wine EnthusiastA sultry shade of dark purple, this luxury bottling by the Daou brothers shows freshly smashed black currant, gravelly minerality, black pepper, espresso and shaved chocolate on the nose. The palate is black to the core, from blueberry to dark chocolate to lava rocks, with strong yet polished tannins and wel-balanced acidity. Decant now or drink 2020-2035.
Wine AdvocateThis wine is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Soul Of A Lion has a gorgeous red and black currants nose with underlying earth, cinnamon stick, cigar box, cloves and sautÃÂ©ed herbs suggestions. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and yet possessing great finesse, it possesses beautiful, fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with persistent perfumed fruit layers.
