Daou brothers release, ‘Soul of a Lion’ in honor of father’s birthday
Vintage is ‘crown jewel’ of Daou and commemorates the brothers’ enduring tribute to their father
– In honor of their father’s birthday on April 7, co-proprietors and brothers Georges and Daniel Daou of DAOU Family Estates have announced the next vintage release of 2019 Estate Soul of a Lion. Exclusively sourced from the DAOU Mountain Estate in the Adelaida district of Paso Robles, Soul of a Lion is the “crown jewel” of Daou and commemorates the brothers’ enduring tribute to their father, Joseph Daou.
“The original soul of a lion, our father, endowed us with unwavering love, passion, and courage throughout our lives,” says co-proprietor Georges Daou. “His pursuit of the extraordinary drove us to discover Daou Mountain—and to embark on a dream decades in the making. 2019 Soul of a Lion is a wine that proudly honors him and will always be released on his birthday in years to come.”
“Soul of a Lion is the pride of our family, and the exemplary 2019 vintage makes this release particularly special,” says Winemaker and Co-Proprietor Daniel Daou. “2019 Soul of a Lion is beautifully structured, balanced, and powerful with ultra-high phenolic levels. It’s everything I hope to accomplish with this wine and a wonderful tribute to my beloved father.”
