The undeniable dominance of Napa Valley as California's premium region for Bordeaux blends has been broken in the last few years by none other than Paso Robles's DAOU Vineyards. Competing with the "best in Napa Valley" in the eyes of Jeb Dunnuck, the Wine Advocate argue that there is "no one else making Cabernet Sauvignon like this" in Central California's Paso Robles.

From the precipice of DAOU Mountian in the Adeleida District away from the media glare of Napa, Daniel DAOU has quietly been revolutionising what wine lovers thought was possible with Paso Robles Bordeaux blends. With perfectly situated high-altitude vineyards, he is now able to craft wines of such 'seamless and cashmere-like' (WA) elegance that have not been produced in the region until now.

DAOU have once again broken records with their newly released Cabernet Sauvignon dominated Soul of a Lion 2018. Receiving its highest-ever score from the Wine Advocate, with 97+ points from Erin Brooks, supported with 96 points from Wine Enthusiast and 95 points from Jeb Dunnuck, it seems Daniel can't take a wrong step at the minute.

Now reaching the levels of the wines such as Joseph Phelps Insignia, Lokoya Spring Mountain and Bond St. Eden, this new edition of Soul of Lion should be ranked not just among Napa Valley's but the world's most iconic Bordeaux blends.

Daou Vineyards has exploded onto the scene as the standard-bearer for one of California's best-kept secrets, Paso Robles. Without the same global press as Sonoma, Napa or Russian River, Paso Robles has been quietly going about its business producing utterly exceptional wine with tons of local style and incredible California character. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in Daou's flagship superstar, Soul of a Lion Cabernet Sauvignon. Daou's vineyards are planted to high density, clinging to extremely steep slopes in the Adeleida District where the grapes achieve incredible phenolic concentration. From hand-picking perfectly mature fruit at night when acidity is at its highest to a resolute commitment to dry-farming their vineyards within any irrigation, to custom made oak barrels, every element in the production process here is uncompromising.
