About The Wine
Produced by California royalty Daou Vineyards, Patrimony is a top-of-the-line Cabernet built for the cellar. Absolutely no corners were cut when producing this wine, it is made using old-world techniques like natural fermentation, and new-world technology like optical sorting for selecting only the best fruit. Patrimony is a must-have wine for any serious California Wine collector.
Hailing from Lebanon by way of Paris, France, Georges, and Daniel Daou moved to the United States as young men and soon achieved business success. But that was just the beginning. From their family history and worldview was now imagined a fearless goal—to produce the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon, and to curate a lifestyle to match. From terroir to winemaking to architecture, they leave no detail unexplored, so that this wine, and this place, may never fail to astonish.
Patrimony is rooted in the unrivaled terroir of Daou Mountain. The phenolics produced on this mountain are known to be among the highest in the world, fostering an immensity of color, depth, and structure. In order to extract the purest and most elevated expression of this terroir, a purposeful omission is required. For this reason, only select vineyard rows are chosen for Patrimony cultivation. By the time the fruit is aggressively thinned, optically sorted, and used only for its free-run juice, a minimal percentage of the total potential yield actually meets the exacting standard we set for Patrimony. Fermentation proceeds exclusively with wild yeasts cultured from Daou Mountain, imbuing the wine with native texture and character.
Aging: 30 Months in low toast New French Oak Barrels selected from exclusively old-growth trees
Tasting Notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is an uber-concentrated wine that offers explosive aromas of lilac, hibiscus, thyme, and dark chocolate. Intense qualities of ripe blackberries, black currant, and blueberries accompany a beautiful harmony of flavors that begin with an impressive entry and linger for several minutes. Full-bodied and silky in texture, this wine displays immense elegance backed by a wonderful minerality, all while remaining fresh and vibrant. This wine will reward careful cellaring and bottle aging for decades to come.
Deep purple-colored, the tiny production 2017 Patrimony Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 30 months in new French. This rocking wine has a huge nose of deep black fruits, new leather, unsmoked tobacco, exotic spices, and chocolate. Full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, with awesome tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and just a gorgeous finish, it's a magical wine and an incredible 2017. Bravo! ~99 Jeb Dunnuck
The wine bursts from the glass with a beautifully pure bouquet of black plums, cherries, and cassis, complemented by notes of candied violets, walnuts, and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ineffably complete, and multidimensional, with bottomless depth at the core, its rich structuring tannins entirely cloaked in bright, succulent fruit. Lavish on the attack, the mid-palate and finish are tense and focused. This is a fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. ~96-98+ Wine Advocate
