Pessimist Red Blend 2017
In a pursuit to create delicious wine inspired by varieties that flourish in Paso Robles, The Pessimist is a blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Tannat. Sourced and crafted by the DAOU Vineyards winemaking team, this wine demonstrates classic old world style with the fruit-forward characteristics of California.
"Bottled just a few weeks ago, the 2016 Pessimist checks in as a blend of 54% Petite Sirah, 27% Syrah and the balance Zinfandel that spent 11 months in 50% new French oak. It offers tons of sweet blackberry jam, spice-box, potpourri, vanilla bean and white chocolate. Ripe, sweetly fruited and concentrated, with tons of charm, it's a guaranteed crowd pleaser." - 90pts, Jeb Dunnuck
