Daou Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
(25)
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93 "I think even a step up over the killer 2013, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with notions of black raspberry, cassis, spice and licorice. More textured, voluptuous, layered and concentrated than all of the previous vintages, it will have an easy 10-15 years of longevity."~JD
