95 Pts Connoisseurs Guide to Wine
"There is no question but that Syrah and Cabernet can, in the right mix, have a real affinity for one and other, but rarely have they been as so very agreeably well-married as they are in this beautifully crafted, extraordinarily deep wine. Running the gamut from blackberries to cassis with elements of sweet oak, cocoa, minerals and dried violets in wonderfully layered support, it exhibits a sense of seriousness and breeding that cannot be missed. It is big, it is young, and it is fairly astringent, but its many important pieces shine though its ample structural tannins, and its careful composition is never in doubt. Find a quiet place for it in the cellar, and by all means let it rest for at least another six to ten years."

"It's no surprise that the Daou brothers blend of 45% Syrah, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot packs a rich blueberry, dark chocolate and espresso nose. Nor is the lush mouthfeel, the grippy, fine-grained tannins, or the the black cherry, stewed beef and black peppercorn flavor profile particularly shocking. It's just another massive, delicious and dark wine from their portfolio."
"Aromas of black currants and crushed blueberries invite you to explore the complexity and depth of this alluring wine. Black plums and blackberries greet your palate as a revue of flavors follow: peppercorns, cedar box, tobacco leaves, ash, licorice, and spice all make their debut and linger just long enough for you to know they were there. Bright acidity and firm, open tannins combine to create a seamless texture that balances intense fruit with DAOU Mountain structure." - Winery
