Tasting Notes With Belmond El Encanto Sommelier Jordan DeVille

Daou Vineyards in Paso Robles yields rich, precision-based wines of prodigious color, texture, and structure, including a Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s no secret that California’s Central Coast is a renowned wine destination, and one of the region’s greats is Daou Vineyards in Paso Robles. Its home on Daou Mountain has an extraordinary phenolic output – among the highest in the world – that yields rich, precision-based wines of prodigious color, texture, and structure. One of our favorites is the winery’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016. This elegant wine offers notes of blackberry, plum, and currant, surrounded by black olive, anise, leather, and just a hint of cool mint. The first to explain the notes perfectly is Fred Dame, master sommelier at Daou Vineyards. He is an incredible figure in wine, achieving major industry milestones consistently throughout his career. He’s certainly an authority in Central Coast wine, which is why our team at Belmond El Encanto invited Fred to co-host our second “Master Sommeliers of the Central Coast” dinner. Fred will walk guests through six delectable courses, sharing the nuances of each vintage he has carefully selected. Seats for the November 13 dinner are available by emailing reservations.ele@belmond.com or by calling (805) 845-5800. Cheers!
