Drink now or cellar for up to 20 years. Decant 1 hours before serving.

Brothers Georges and Daniel Daou scoured the Napa Valley for the perfect terroir to found their ambitious new winery before finally discovering this prized Paso Robles property. The 212 acre estate is set in the Adelaida District and has been described as “a jewel of ecological elements” by top Californian winemaker André Tchelistcheff.

The limestone-rich soils are reminiscent of those found in many top French vineyards, while the pleasant Napa climate favours premium winemaking, helping to create stunning Bordeaux-style blends with a distinctive New World vibrancy and power. The brothers’ Eye of the Falcon cuvee is are careful composition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot which is aged in 70% new French oak barrels to soften and harmonise the young wine.

Enticing cassis, black cherry, and crushed wild berry aromas immediately burst out of the glass followed by undertones of graphite, leather, and tobacco leaf. The first sip reveals a generous full body, firm yet smooth tannins, and a long finish seasoned with hints of dried herbs, cedar, and woodsmoke from the oak ageing. This blockbuster cuvee will continue to age beautifully in the cellar over the next decade or so, although it can also be savoured now alongside hearty red meat dishes.
