Paso Robles, California

Vinous 91 points - (60% new French oak) Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Intense cherry and red berry scents, along with hints of cracked pepper, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated red currant, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly and turn sweeter on the back half. Fine-grained tannins build on a long, spice-laced finish that leaves behind a suggestion of cherry compote. In the context of top-notch California Cabernets, this wine delivers remarkable value..September/2018
Wine Advocate 90 points - 90-92 - Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is very promising, revealing a youthfully primary bouquet of currants and plums that’s already integrated its new oak. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, richly structured and generous, with a sun-kissed core of fruit and a dry, fine-grained finish. A cuvee that includes purchased fruit, this is typically a great value. I’m looking forward to seeing it from bottle..August/2018
Jeb Dunnuck 90 points - Bottle two weeks ago, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon offers classic notes of blackcurrants, tobacco, licorice, and smoke herbs, and as with the Pessimist, it’s a whole lot of wine for not much buck..November/2018
Brothers Daniel and Georges Daou’s deeply flavored, expressive, polished wines are consistently at the top of the Paso Robles heap of Bordeaux-inspired wines. They can stand toe-to-toe with the best that Napa has to offer, as I have experienced a number of times in blind tastings. The entry-level Cabernet Sauvignon bottling, which includes purchased fruit, is a flat-out steal and makes by-the-glass appearances at top restaurants across the country. The upper-level wines, which are made from fruit grown in the Daous’ 92-acre mountaintop vineyard, are by no means inexpensive, but they are actually solid, even outstanding values relative to their peers from up north - even the ultra-luxe Patrimony bottling, which stands up to comparisons with any Cabernet Sauvignon that I know, from anywhere. - From Paso Robles 2016 & 2015: New Releases (Sep 2018) by Josh Raynolds
