Daou Vineyards 2018 The Pessimist Red
Paso Robles California
Wine Advocate 92 Rating
The 2018 Pessimist is a blend of 62% Petite Sirah, 19% Zinfandel, 17% Syrah and 2% Lagrein. It is aged for 11 months in 50% new French oak. Opaque ruby-purple, it offers up tar, chargrill, turned black earth and blackcurrants with wafts of blackcurrant bud, dark chocolate, smoked meats and crushed red cherries. The medium to full-bodied palate has lifted flavor layers, a firm, grainy frame and long, spicy, fresh finish.
