Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For DAOU Vineyards Pessimist Red Blend 2020


The 2020 Pessimist has a powerful and intensely aromatic nose that ascends to greet you with blueberry, boysenberry and black plum fragrance. Evolving layers reveal elderberry and truffle, with cocoa and cardamom spice accents, further augmented by hints of eucalyptus, leather, cherry pipe tobacco and grilled meats.

Broad and expansive on the palate, bestowing lush and generous flavors of black cherry, blueberry, crème 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.

Critic Ratings

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 11/1/2021 - Rated 92:
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. MATT KETTMANN
