Winemakers description: Our 2019 Estate Soul of a Lion is a blockbuster vintage that showcases how Bordeaux varieties are remarkably suited to the terroir of DAOU Mountain.
Winemaker Daniel Daou combines intensive research with his own sensory talents to drive one of the world’s most innovative winemaking programs.
Daniel spends countless hours in the vineyard to maximize the flavors, phenolics and purity of our fruit. All fruit from DAOU Mountain is hand-picked, then sorted by cutting-edge optical technology.
This wine is fermented with proprietary native yeast cultivated from the Estate and made from 100 percent free run juice.
Each fermentation is managed with continual phenolic analysis, ensuring an exquisite mouthfeel in each wine.
With these and other proprietary techniques, Daniel is able to make age-worthy wines that consistently exhibit depth, balance and first growth elegance.
