DAOU Pessimist Red Blend 2022
Intense aromas of blueberry, black raspberry, and currant are complemented by hints of cherry, rhubarb, and plum. Trailing scents of mushroom and allspice are followed by suggestions of chocolate, toffee and vanilla. The palate is bright and vibrant, revealing flavors of cherry, cranberry, plum, raspberry and pomegranate. A silky texture unfolds with layers of complexity, accentuating the rich fruit with a gentle spiciness and subtle earthiness. Powerful and harmonious, this wine delivers a heady sensory experience all the way through a long finish of blueberry and black cherry.
