Professional Wine Reviews for Daou Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2013

Rated 94 by Robert Parker
Scheduled to be bottled in two weeks, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve tastes just like the '12, only with an extra layer of fruit and texture. Black raspberry, new leather, espresso and licorice all give way to a full-bodied, concentrated and intense Cabernet that has a great mid-palate and plenty of sweet tannin. Give it a year or so to incorporate a touch more of its oak and enjoy bottles through 2028.
Rated 91 by Stephen Tanzer
Opaque ruby. High-pitched aromas of ripe red fruits, peppery spices and fresh flowers, with a subtle vanilla quality in the background. On the palate, juicy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors are complicated by hints of dark chocolate and allspice. Tightens up on the youthfully tannic finish, which clings with very good spicy tenacity.

Additional Information on Daou Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2013

Winery: Daou Vineyards

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

By far and away the most recognized and widely grown red wine grape varietal in the world is the Cabernet Sauvignon. First cultivated in the 18th century in France, this wonderful cross of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes has long since been the most important varietal for red wines across the globe. Now grown everywhere from its native France to the furthest reaches of the New World, Cabernet Sauvignon is adored and prized by wineries for its hardiness and resistance to rot, as well as its large and sharp flavors and wonderful capability for fine aging Indeed, many of the finest wines of history and the modern age would be simply unimaginable without Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, with the famed wineries of Bordeaux and other important regions using it as the primary grape in their oak aged produce. High tannin levels, acidity and powerful flavors are the characteristics most commonly associated with this varietal, however, when blended and slowly aged, it is capable of a world of flavors and aromas unmatched by any other grape.

Region: California

It isn't difficult to see how California became one of the world's most important, successful and influential wine regions. Since the first vines were planted in the state by Spanish pioneers in the 18th century, the region has made the most of its ideal climatic conditions, which range from hot, dry and arid to windswept and cool, for vineyard cultivation and wine production. Today, California has almost half a million acres under vine, and hundreds of independent and well established wineries dotted across its vast wine-making areas. Californian wines range from the traditional, and those emulating fine Old World wines, to the experimental and unique, and it is the home to many of the world's most exciting and trailblazing wineries producing excellent bottles for the global market.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.
