We are excited to invite you to be a part of our Sunfish Cellars Virtual Wine Community!
Join us Thursday, June 11th, at 6:30pm for a Zoom conference tasting of fabulous wines from our cellar. This week's tasting will feature wonderful, reasonably priced wines from DAOU Vineyards in Paso Robles. We will be joined for the tasting by the legendary Fred Dame, who is the dean of American sommeliers. There is no way to overstate his stature in the wine world. If you have seen any of the Somm documentaries, you are aware of reverence in which he is regarded.

This week's tasting includes:
2018 DAOU Vineyards Chardonnay, $15.99
This is a lush and luxuriant Chardonnay with tropical aromas of pineapple, mango, and freshly sliced banana, all accented by captivating accents of nutmeg, vanilla, honeysuckle, and hazelnut. The palate is voluminous and silky, with elegant flavors of honeydew melon, golden delicious apple, and lemon curd. Secondary layers offer hints of kiwi, papaya, baking spice, and clover honey. A clean, lengthy finish lingers with essences of melon, mango, citrus, and toasty but restrained oak.

2019 DAOU Vineyards Rose, $16.99
Delightfully fragrant and floral, showing lovely aromas of fresh strawberry, sliced peach, and watermelon with nuances of hibiscus, cherry, and clover honey. The palate is refreshingly crisp yet lusciously smooth, revealing juicy flavors of nectarine, orange, strawberry parfait, and golden delicious apple. These primary flavors are underlain by plush, pleasing notes of papaya and honeydew melon, accented with a suggestion of rosehip tea. A long, clean finish lingers with impressions of peach, citrus zest, and Barbados cherry. A beautiful wine for summer sipping.

2017 DAOU Vineyards Bodyguard, $31.99
A sleek yet powerful blend of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah, displaying opulence and structure. The 2017 vintage shows aromas of blackberry, raspberry, currant, and crème de cassis. Notes of cocoa, coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, and sweet cherry pipe tobacco are rounded out with truffle, toffee, mocha, and menthol. A juicy, fleshy palate offers bright, generous flavors of cherry, cranberry, strawberry, and blueberry tinged with black raspberry — all supported by underlying accents of dusty leather, pencil shavings, cigar box, and crushed herbs. Elegantly styled and beautifully structured.
