Reserve Eye of the Falcon 2019

a Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso RoblesCA
$75 per bottle

The 2019 DAOU Reserve Eye of the Falcon is a joyous marriage of two beloved Bordeaux varieties—Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The nose offers vivid aromas of blackberry, cassis, bing cherry and saddle leather. Subtle notes of mulberry, kirsch, pencil shavings and milk chocolate are accented by crushed dried flowers and a suggestion of mint. On the palate, a torrent of juicy, concentrated fruit flavors includes boysenberry, plum, black currant and blueberry, all graced by hints of sage, sandalwood and black raspberry. The mouthfeel is layered, harmonious and firmly structured with a silky texture. Bright fruit ultimately yields to richer layers of exotic spice, cigar box and fennel, concluding with a long, elegant finish.
