DAOU VINEYARDS & WINERY,BODY GUARD RED BLEND PASO ROBLES
The 2017 vintage presents fragrant fruit aromas of blackberry, raspberry, currant, and crème de cassis. Notes of cocoa, coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, and sweet cherry pipe tobacco are rounded out with whispers of truffle, toffee, mocha, and menthol. A juicy, fleshy palate offers bright, generous flavors of cherry, cranberry, strawberry, and blueberry tinged with black raspberry and tamarind—all supported by underlying accents of dusty leather, pencil shavings, cigar box, and crushed herbs. An elegantly styled and beautifully structured finish reverberates with focused energy, vibrant berry fruit, and ripe, polished tannins.
Georges Daou and Daniel Daou are inseparable as brothers, friends, and visionaries. DAOU is the realization of their childhood dream and a testament to the timeless bonds of love and family.
Georges Daou, Proprietor
Yet it was only on DAOU Mountain that he discovered his true calling. Here, he became the shepherd of a dream: that the mountain’s wines would one day bring joy and pleasure to people around the world. “The raw jewels of this mountain have been here for thousands of years, but they can only be unlocked through great imagination,” Georges says. “This is the quest we are wholly engaged in—and it is the journey that we invite you to walk with us.”
Daniel Daou, Proprietor & Winemaker
These gifts have enabled him to master both the science and creativity necessary to make transcendent wines. Upon discovering DAOU Mountain, he set out to elevate Paso Robles to a new level by becoming the region’s ambassador of Bordeaux varieties. His heart ultimately lies in the vineyard, where he spends the majority of his time living amongst the vines—attentive to every possibility for cultivating the purest expression of terroir.
We are made up of a group of committed individuals dedicated to the common goals of creating first-growth wines from the Adelaida district of Paso Robles, elevating the standards and expectations of the wine industry, and developing an ideal work environment.
