Notes from the Winemaker:
A rich and compelling nose of blackberry, cassis, smoky leather and dried herbs is enhanced with layers of plum and cherry, cocoa and sandalwood. Notes of pencil lead and crushed rock mingle with subtle nuances of sage and menthol. Bold and full bodied, this wine is structured firmly around a solid core of boysenberry and cherry fruit.

Supple, ripe tannins provide ample backbone for the layers of boysenberry, black cherry, licorice and dried herb flavors. Fleshy and weighty on the palate while retaining balance and finesse, it finishes long and clean with lingering notes of plum and blackberry.

Ratings & Reviews

90-92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2019 Vintage): 
"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon from Daou's Discovery Series is blended with 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. It is still in barrel but will age around 10 months in 60% new French oak. It has a deep ruby-purple color and a nose of cassis, garrigue, charcuterie and sweet baking spices. The palate is medium-bodied, lifted and gently structured with grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing long." - Erin Brooks (10/30/2020)

89-91 Points - Jeb Dunnuck (2019 Vintage):
"Previously released as the Daou Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Discovery comes mostly from purchased grapes but includes some press wine from the estate as well. It has beautiful plum and currant fruits as well as pretty spice and violet notes, medium-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and good acidity. It's a terrific wine that's going to represent a great value." (9/1/2020)
