About This Item

Overview: Georges and Daniel Daou are inseparable as brothers, best friends, and visionaries. DAOU is the realization of their childhood dream and a testament to the timeless bonds of love and family. 

The Bodyguard Red Blend is the next masterwork by Winemaker Daniel Daou. Aged 18 months in new French Oak, a blend of petit verdot and petite syrah. From Paso Robles.

“The happiness we found on DAOU Mountain came from following our father’s example. Soul of a Lion is a tribute to the man who made it all possible.”

= GEORGES & DANIEL DAOU 

Tasting Notes: 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. Ripe, supple tannins provide structure, volume and a velvety mouthfeel, resulting in a powerful, elegant finish with suggestions of cherry, cranberry, plum and crushed stone.

Pairing: Mexican food, steak, or lamb.

Points: 93, Jeb Dunnuck
