The 2012 vintage allowed for beautifully robust wines concentrated in color and with plenty of structure. Allow these wines some time to age to unlock their true potential.


WA (93-95) Pts - According to Wine Advocate - Scheduled to be bottled at the end of August, the 2012 Soul of a Lion has more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than past vintages and offers full-throttle aromas of blackberry liqueur, chocolate, espresso and graphite. Full-bodied, concentrated and structured, with some chewy tannin, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and evolve gracefully for 10-15 years.

According to Antonio Galloni - Daou's top of the line Soul of a Lion is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. A dark, voluptuous wine, the Soul of a Lion captures the essence of the Daou house style. There is good purity to the fruit, but today it is the new French oak that dominates above all else, likely a reflection of the wine's essentially mid-weight structure. Still, this is a hugely intriguing wine. The blend is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot.
