The 2020 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.

Savory aromas of black olive and coffee grounds lead the nose in this blend of 58% Petit Verdot and 42% Petite Sirah. There's a dark fruit flavor to the bold palate, where charred meat and espresso accents are most prominent.

A value-priced release from this team that has delivered the goods in every vintage I've tasted, the 2019 Bodyguard has a rich, medium to full-bodied, textured profile to go with exotic blue fruits, notes of mint, flowers, and candied violets, silky tannins, and a great finish. A blend of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah, it's for the fruit lovers out there.

Deep ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, tobacco and licorice are complemented by floral and succulent herb topnotes. Gently chewy and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated black currant, cherry-vanilla and baking spice flavors and a hint of dusty minerality. At once rich and energetic, finishing long and focused, with solid dark fruit thrust, even tannins and lingering florality. 50% new French oak.
