The 2014 Daou Estate Soul of a Lion shows beautiful depth of color. This inky purple wine is loaded with aromas of plums, creme de cassis, garrigue and exotic flowers. On the palate, the wine is layered with velvety tannins and shows a unique elegance while being accompanied by extreme intensity and power. Nuanced vanilla bean, toasted spice, graphite, licorice and lead pencil shaving like aromas round out the spectrum flavors. Insanely concentrated, it has a gorgeous harmonious length that extends into a seamless finish which lingers on the senses. Armed with a great tannin structure, it will certainly benefit from laying down for several years.

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 sautéed 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.
