DAOU Soul Of A Lion 75cl 2018 15% ABV
DAOU Soul Of A Lion, California, USA
DAOU’s most powerful and complex Wine, the Soul of a Lion, represents a man who was nothing short of a leader.
The Daou family Patriarch, Joseph Daou, exhibited the strength and courage seen in the king of the jungle. After he instilled these same traits in his sons, their success and newfound legacy was a sight he had to see before his passing. On his DAOU Mountain visit, he listened to his son’s winemaking dream and gave them his blessing. Soul of a Lion is a testament to that moment, a tribute to the man and fitting to the father.
DAOU Mountain stands alone at an elevation of 2,200 feet, rising from the heart of the Adelaida District in the rugged coastal range west of Paso Roble. Their 14 unique Cabernet Sauvignon clones are planted at a high density to create wines of great balance. This rare phenomenon combines the calcareous clay soil that emulates the Right Bank of Bordeaux and a climate that closely identifies with St. Helena in Napa. It is a terroir of power, purity, and symmetry, with every natural asset necessary to pursue the perfect Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Soul of a Lion is aged for 22 months in custom French oak barrels selected from France’s finest cooperages. This vintage displays richness, elegance and balance—the hallmarks of a superb growing season that allowed for extended ripening. A deep, complex bouquet reveals notes of cassis, black currant, liquorice, incense, ripe plum and vanilla. The palate is full-bodied, layered and complex, while smooth, silky tannins lead to a persistent finish.
