“A PESSIMIST IS NEVER DISAPPOINTED.”

Paso Robles, CA

Red blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Tannat.

Tasting Notes (2015)

The 2015 pessimist is a very dark wine that offers gorgeous crème de cassis, black cherry, boysenberries, and toasted vanilla beans accompanied with sweet tannins and purity of fruit. Firm, yet elegant tannins balance the powerhouse of fruit and lead to a strong, lasting finish of black pepper, pipe tobacco, and spicy oak.

Blend: 37% Syrah 31% Petite Sirah 27% Zinfandel 5% Tannat

 

Tasting Notes (2016)

Intense red fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and rhubarb are complemented by an undercurrent of blue and black fruits; blueberry, blackberry and plum. Accompanying them are mushroom and allspice notes, accented with chocolate and hints of toffee and vanilla.

Bright and vibrant on the palate, flavors of cherry, cranberry and pomegranate dance on the tongue. A silky texture coupled with a lovely cinnamon spiciness produces a memorable, mouthwatering sensorial experience. Multilayered and complex, with an extraordinary combination of harmonious flavors and aromas, this wine delivers in exquisite fashion, and the finish is long enough for one to ponder the depth and complexity of the sensations the wine offers.
