The Pessimist (by Daou) Red Blend 2019 (Paso Robles, CA)

92PTS W.E.

Producer Notes: The 2019 Pessimist is everything you have come to expect from this beloved red blend. 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.

Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points: “This wine kicks off with aromas of baked blackberry, cracked pepper, graphite and dried meat. The palate is awash in oak tones, balanced by black currant, blueberry pie and nutmeg flavors. It's hedonistically satisfying. "

Jeb Dunnuck, 92 Points: A blend of 74% Petite Sirah, 13% Syrah, and 13% Zinfandel, brought up in 60% new French oak, the 2019 The Pessimist gives up loads of sweet blueberries and barbecue notes as well as more violets, spice, vanilla, and candied flower nuances with time in the glass. Beautifully textured and full-bodied, it has a rounded, opulent texture and a great finish. It's a sexy fruit bomb to enjoy over the coming 3-5 years.

Wine Advocate, 91 Points: The 2019 Pessimist is a blend of 74% Petite Sirah, 13% Syrah and 13% Zinfandel, aged 10 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple-black in color, it is scented of warm plums, vanilla bean and cinnamon with plush, ripe black fruits at the core. The palate is full-bodied, grainy and plush with ripe, juicy fruits and loads of sweet spices lingering on the finish. It's an upfront, fruit-forward style that's perfect for drinking straight from bottle over the next 3-5 years.
