"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." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
The Daou brothers crafted this Syrah-based red to be, in their words, "an authentic blend that even a pessimist will love." It's fully loaded on all fronts, combining a strong jam-and-dark-chocolate attack with soft undertones of vanilla from the oak. The flavors are concentrated and full-bodied, extending nicely through the long, lingering finish. Along with its gorgeous richness, this 2015 features a soft and supple texture with a seductive personality that entices you to take another sip.
"The 2015 Pessimist is one of the more forward, ready to go and sexy releases in the lineup. Made from 37% Syrah, 27% Zinfandel, 31% Petite Sirah and the rest Tannat and Grenache, it gives up tons of sweet dark fruits, spice box, vanilla bean and sweet oak in its full-bodied, nicely balanced, mouth-filling style. It will be ready to go on release." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
