DAOU Pessimist, Paso Robles, Central Coast, 2020


2020 DAOU Pessimist, from Daou vineyards, is located in Paso Robles, California. This was one of my father-in-law's favourite wines, although high in abv, you don't taste the alcohol due to such an intense blend. The wine's name represents Daniel Daou's take on creating Daou .

Production area
Paso Robles, Central Coast, California, USA

Petite Sirah,Zinfandel, Syrah,Lagrein 

deep ruby colour, the nose is packed full of blueberry, boysenberry and black plum. Secondary layers reveal elderberry, truffle, cocoa and cardamom spice accented by hints of eucalyptus, leather, cherry pipe tobacco and grilled meats. Broad and expansive on the palate, it bestows lush, generous flavours of black cherry, blueberry crème de cassis and damp forest floor. Hints of lavender, anise and black olive complement the rich, ripe fruit flavours. Massive in weight yet elegantly structured, this wine is a powerhouse that reveals itself gradually yet deliberately. It finishes smoothly with leisure and length, on notes of blackberry, espresso bean and pomegranate

Food Pairings
Steak, roasted red meat and aged or blue cheese.
