About Patrimony 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Adelaida Dist., Paso Robles
PATRIMONY is the creation of brothers Daniel Daou and Georges Daou, proprietors of DAOU Vineyards & Winery. Hailing from Lebanon by way of Paris, Daniel and Georges moved to California in their youth and soon achieved success in business. This, however, was just the beginning of their journey. Inspired by their family history and worldview, the Daou brothers embarked on a fearless goal — to produce the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon. With this dream now decades in the making, Daniel and Georges are pleased to share PATRIMONY with the world: a benchmark for luxury wine in Paso Robles and beyond.
The 2019 Cab is aged for 30 Months in 100% new, low toast New French Oak Barrels selected from exclusively old-growth trees and is 100% free run juice.
Both Tasting Panel and Jeb Dunnuck rated it 99 Points, and JD raved 'The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon continues to show brilliantly. (I rated it 97-100 from barrel last year.) It has a quintessential Cabernet nose of pure crème de cassis, crushed stone, lead pencil, graphite, and tobacco that gains depth and richness with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, rich, and incredibly textured, yet still fresh, light on its feet, and beautifully balanced, this gorgeous Cabernet shows what's possible with the variety from Paso Robles.
Wine Advocate (Parker) rated it 98 points saying 'The 2019 Patrimony Cabernet Sauvignon was made with free-run juice and matured for 30 months in 100% new French oak. It has a deep ruby color and alluring tones of truffle, brown sugar and coffee to begin, opening with time to very pure cassis, boysenberry, tobacco, garrigue and aniseed. The palate is supple and fresh with surprisingly restrained, mineral-laced fruits and a fan of spicy accents across the long finish. This ultra sleek, elegant Cabernet evolves continually in the glass and has the harmonious structure it needs to go the distance in the cellar.'
Wine Enthusiast gave it 97 Points and said 'Opaque in color, the wine opens with intense yet elegant aromas of cassis, toasted espresso and roasted walnut paste. Polished tannins frame the rich sip, loaded with scorched earth, dark cassis and purple-flower flavors, proving very dry yet luxurious, with a lingering finish.'
