Professional Wine Reviews for Daou Vineyards Seventeen Forty Reserve Red Blend 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.

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

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
