The Bodyguard is the newest edition to this exceptional collection from winemaker Daniel Daou. Bold and brooding, it displays a vivid, deep purple hue accompanied by an intense nose of chocolate-covered blueberry, black raspberry, Zante currant, pencil lead and damp forest floor. Secondary layers reveal notes of kirsch, fennel, black olive and a hint of cool wintergreen. A lush palate of black plum, dried cherry and blackberry is supported by a firm structure with polished fine-grained tannins. Highlights of dusty leather, dried sage and truffle add layers of complexity that complement the rich, dark fruit. The finish strikes an impressive balance of power and grace, with lingering notes of currant, dark chocolate and crushed stone minerality that enhance the fullness of the experience.

Wine Enthusiast: 93 Points

"Very dark in the glass, this bold blend offers aromas of charred walnut, espresso bean, cassis and fudge on the nose. There is a firm grip to the quite savory palate, where prominent woodspice aromas meet with more coffee as well as charred plum and cassis flavors." The Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points
