2018 Daou Central Coast Pinot
The 2018 vintage offers enticing aromas of cherry, rhubarb and rose petal, with notes of African violet, cloves and toasty oak. Silky and lush on the palate, this wine delivers rich flavors of ripe strawberry, cherry and black raspberries.

ABOUT THE WINERY
Daniel Daou was one of the first to bring Cabernet clones to Paso Robles that deliver the highest possible quality-clones from the iconic regions of the world such as Bordeaux and Napa. His unparalleled focus on viticulture drove him to create an intense vine density planting structure – up to 3,630 vines per acre on steep slopes. With the mind of a scientist and the heart of an artist, Daniel created a proprietary phenolic system based on his palate that allows him to unlock some of the highest level phenolics in the world for Bordeaux varieties, resulting in some of the most intensely colored, age-worthy and aromatic wines in the world. Additionally, he has created a protocol in the vineyard that allows him to maneuver through climate change ensuring no damage to the grapes in the case of heat spikes. He leaves no stone unturned, no vine left behind.
