Inspired by the renowned rosé wines of Provence, France, our 2020 DAOU Discovery Collection Rosé remains faithful to its origins. This wine is remarkably fragrant, offering generous aromas of fresh peach, Bartlett pear, and nectarine, with subtle notes of hyacinth, apricot, and crushed rose petals. The palate is delightfully silky, underlying a clean, fresh crispness delivering enticing flavors of mango, Crenshaw melon, lemon chiffon, and tangerine. Secondary layers reveal hints of sweet cherry and vanilla with orange peel accents. A luxurious and lasting finish leaves traces of apple pie, strawberry, and kiwi.
DAOU Discovery Collection wines represent our passion for approachable luxury. Winemaker Daniel Daou has cultivated deep connections with families of growers for numerous vintages, allowing him to maintain absolute quality and consistency. The 2020 growing season began on a dry note, followed by much-needed rain in April that replenished the soils and set the stage for healthy canopy growth. Conditions through midsummer remained mild and steady, with the exception of a rare August thunderstorm. The wines of 2020 are marked by a voluptuous mouthfeel with considerable flesh and power.
Family-owned and operated, DAOU Family Estates is committed to producing collectible, world-class wines to rival the most respected appellations in the world. Situated on a 212-acre hilltop Estate in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles, our remarkable geology, favorable microclimate, and high elevation were once described by renowned California winemaker, André Tchelistcheff, as “a jewel of ecological elements.” As stewards of this beautiful terroir, DAOU’s goal is to make unique fine wines that honestly and accurately reflect the potential of the Estate and to craft Bordeaux-style wines that combine Old World tradition with New World techniques.
As young men, brothers Georges and Daniel Daou shared the same dream: to live a life in wine. Their dream prevailed years later when they discovered what would become known as DAOU Mountain, an untapped world-class terroir in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles.
Ever since, they have poured their souls into creating some of California’s most noteworthy wines while cultivating a guest experience to match. In the end, DAOU is about family - and the truth that nothing brings people together like wine.

@KNmeh7 No comment on the other aspects of the marketing, but the shape of the bottle is stupid. I have limited, standardized space in my wine fridge and each of those bottles uses up 2 slots. I might buy wine in an oversized bottle, but it starts out with a strike against it.
OT: this is also a rant against the wine fridge designers for making their tolerances so tight to the typical Bordeaux bottle that it creates issues with some chard and PN bottles. The fridge specs say it holds 155 bottles, but in IRL it’s full at about 130. No, I am not asking anyone to cry for me.
@DebRVA With you on this one. Tougher for the storage challenged, but it goes right into the party refrigerator in the garage and comes out just as quick to the delight of our regular crew. In for another case, we’re down to the last bottle.
I am also down to my last bottle and pretty darn excited to see it before I am out! Bottle shape be damned I am in for at least a case…possibly two as I really enjoy this rose and from the shop I can walk to down the street the price is ridiculous.
We had a bottle from our local wine club in our cellar, I opened it up to see if it was a good as I remember. It is. Very reminiscent of Provençal style rosé at a great price. Bottle size be damned, I’m in for a case.
