Product Overview

The 2017 Daou Pessimist has a powerful and intensely aromatic nose that offers blueberry, boysenberry and black plum fragrance with layers of elderberry, truffle, cocoa, cardamom, eucalyptus, leather, cherry pipe tobacco and grilled meats. Broad and expansive on the palate, bestowing lush and generous flavors of black cherry, blueberry, cr√É®me de cassis and damp forest floor. Notes of lavender, anise and black olives complement the rich fruit. Massive in weight yet elegantly structured, this wine is a powerhouse that reveals itself in controlled stages. The finish is smooth and leisurely. Essences of pure dark berry fruit seemingly refuse to abate with a gorgeous fitting finale.

Varietal Composition: 64 Petite Sirah, 23 Syrah, 10 Zinfandel, 2 Lagrein, 1 Tannat

(90-92) Points - Wine Advocate
"A value-priced Rh√É¥ne blend that usually contains some Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, the 2017 Pessimist offers up rich aromas of dark fruit, grilled meat, licorice and black olive. It's full-bodied, rich and spicy, with good balance and an intense, flavorful finish." -WK, 5/31/18
