Professional Wine Reviews for Daou Vineyards Seventeen Forty Reserve 2013

Rated 94 by Robert Parker
Showing better from bottle than barrel, the 2013 Seventeen Forty Reserve is 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot, all of which saw 20 months in 70% new French oak. It's an elegant, seamless wine that has top tier purity, fine, fine tannin and classy notes of spring flowers, underbrush, cassis, sweet oak and licorice. Like the other 2013s here, it has the purity and texture to shine in its youth, yet it should age gracefully.

Additional Information on Daou Vineyards Seventeen Forty Reserve 2013

Winery: Daou Vineyards

Region: California

When it comes to New World wine regions, it is widely agreed that many of the finest wines are grown and produced in California. The long stretches of coastline and the valleys and mountainsides which come off them are ideal areas for vine cultivation, and for over a century now, wineries have found a perfect home in the hot, dry state, with many of the wines produced here going on to reach world class status. The state is greatly helped by the brisk oceanic winds which cool the otherwise hot and dry vineyards, which hold mineral rich soils covering vast areas and featuring many established wineries. The state is split into four main regions, the largest by far being the central valley which stretches over three hundred miles in length.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.
