Blackberry, cassis, plum and currant aromas greet the nose, surrounded by black olives, anise, leather and cigar box. Notes of graphite and crushed stone mingle with just a hint of cool mint. Robust and full bodied, an undercurrent of restrained power is palpable just below the surface at the core of this wine. Firm, fine grained tannins provide ample backbone for the layers of boysenberry, black cherry, licorice and dried herb flavors. Meaty and fleshy while retaining an overall elegance, it finishes with authority and finesse.
Georges Daou and Daniel Daou are inseparable as brothers, friends and visionaries. DAOU is the realization of their childhood dream, and a testament to the timeless bonds of love and family.
Georges Daou, Proprietor
Yet it was only on DAOU Mountain that he discovered his true calling. Here, he became the shepherd of a dream: that the mountain’s wines would one day bring joy and pleasure to people around the world. “The raw jewels of this mountain have been here for thousands of years, but they can only be unlocked through great imagination,” Georges says. “This is the quest we are wholly engaged in—and it is the journey that we invite you to walk with us.”
Daniel Daou, Proprietor & Winemaker
These gifts have enabled him to master both the science and creativity necessary to make transcendent wines. Upon discovering DAOU Mountain, he set out to elevate Paso Robles to a new level by becoming the region’s ambassador of Bordeaux varieties. His heart ultimately lies in the vineyard, where he spends the majority of his time living amongst the vines—attentive to every possibility for cultivating the purest expression of terroir.
We are made up of a group of committed individuals dedicated to the common goals of creating first-growth wines from the Adelaida district of Paso Robles, elevating the standards and expectations of the wine industry and developing an ideal work environment.
