Daou 2015 Seventeen Forty Reserve Cabernet Franc-Merlot (Paso Robles)

Cellar Selection

This elegant blend of 65% Cabernet Franc and 35% Merlot is still very wound up on the nose, and yet already amazing in aromas of crushed gravel, tar, condensed black currant, black pepper and earthy bay leaf. On the palate, the acidity and tightly woven tannins are pitch perfect for long-term aging, which will allow the black fruit and dark spice flavors to mature. Sit on it until 2019, and drink through 2035. Matt Kettmann
