Daou Soul Of A Lion 2015
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Soul Of A Lion is superb, opening in the glass with a rich bouquet of cassis, pencil shavings, asphalt and subtle bay leaf. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and very powerful, with huge depth and dimension and a chewy, savory finish. While this is very much a large-scaled wine, it's full of energy and its fruit is ripe but not sweet. In the context of this cuvée, this is certainly one of the more sun-kissed renditions of Soul Of A Lion, but it's an amazing achievement in a challenging vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon. Based on previous iterations' evolution, it should evolve for a long time.
Wine SpectatorRich and firm, with a solid core of dark berry, plum, blueberry and blackberry flavors that fan out evenly on the palate, ending with a burst of melted black licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 1,500 cases made.
