Daou Bodyguard Red Blend Paso Robles
This wine opens with a vibrant, fragrant nose of blueberry cobbler, cherry pipe tobacco, dark chocolate and espresso laced with hints of sandalwood, licorice and pencil lead. Underlying layers reveal notes of mulberry and truffle, all accented by suggestions of black currant, kirsch, bay leaf and vanilla. The palate is silky and graceful, unfolding with lavish flavors of cherry pie, plum, blackberry jam and raspberry—all converging seamlessly with earthy notes of cigar box, leather, black olive and crushed sage.
Blend: 58% Petit Verdot, 42% Petite Sirah
