2017 Chardonnay
Floral and fragrant with a nose of pear and white peach, fresh vanilla bean creme brûlée and star jasmine. The palate is lush and silky with fruit flavors of mango, pineapple and kiwi laced with hazelnut and honeysuckle.
 
Reserve Chardonnay 92 points, Wine Enthusiast
Bright citrus, honey and warm toast on the nose with hints of tangerine, orange blossom, vanilla, lemon chiffon and nutmeg. Aromas flow into the palate of pineapple, nectarine, casaba melon and cinnamon toast. Good weight yet crisp with a long and flavorful finish.
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
For serious wine lovers. The aromas are black cherry, currant, plum and blackberry bolstered by chocolate, tobacco and menthol with wisps of olive, fig and dried thyme. The bold palate presents dark fruits, bing cherries, black raspberry, plum, pomegranate with notes of cranberries and rhubarb, fennel and cigar box. 
 
2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Impressive aromas of black cherry, Oregon blackberry surrounded by cigar box, desert sage and peppermint with unfolding layers of blueberry, leather, black plum and whisks of wild mushroom, bayleaf and white pepper. Voluptuous on the palate with fruit and earthy undertones. Elegant yet powerful. 91-93 Points, Wine Advocate
 
2017 Pessimist
A blend of 64%Petite Sirah, 23%Syrah, 10%Zinfandel, 2%Lagrein and 1%Tannat. Much like a pessimist, you will not be disappointed! Powerful and aromatic nose of blueberry, boysenberry and black plum evolving into layers of elderberry, truffle, cocoa, cardamom spice and hints of eucalyptus, leather and cherry pie. The lush palate is black cherry, blueberry and forest floor with notes of lavender, anise and black olives. Smooth finish.
 
The History:
    As children growing up in Lebanon, Georges and Daniel fell in love with the rural way of life during visits to their grandfather’s ancient olive groves. Their world was turned upside down, however, when the Daou family home was struck by an errant rocket at the start of the Lebanese civil war.  
    The Daous were forced to emigrate to Paris and later moved to Southern France. It was here surrounded by vineyards that reminded them of their childhood that Georges and Daniel first began to dream of a life in wine.
Georges Daou, Proprietor
 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
   Daniel has mastered 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.
