Daou Vineyards ‘The Pessimist’

Wine: Daou Vineyards ‘The Pessimist’

Producer: Daou Vineyards

Country: USA

Region: California / Paso Robles

Style: Red

Blend: Petite Sirah 64%, Syrah 23%, Zinfandel 10%, Lagrein 2%, Tannat 1%

ABV: 15.5%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: A wonderful blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Lagrein & Tannat which showcases an Old world-style wine with the undoubtedly fruit-forward style of Californian wines.

Inky & dark aubergine in colour. A powerhouse wine with a plethora of fruit showcasing blueberry, plum & strawberry. Smoky notes of truffle & roasted coffee are accompanied by floral accents consisting of lavender & lilac, highlighted by underlying nuances of buttered toast & vanilla.

 

Producer Info: Brothers George & Daniel Daou discovered the land that was to become Daou Mountain 10 years ago, the result of their search to find an unrivalled terroir for the production of Cabernet Sauvignon. What was then Hoffman Mountain Ranch vineyard & winery was the first gravity-flow winery in America & first commercial-scale winery in Paso Robles.
Known affectionately as “Maestro” & “the dean of Americans winemakers,” then enoligist Andre Tchelistcheff mentored a long list of legendary California winemakers. He revolutionized Napa Valley wine making by concentrating on high-quality California Cabernet Sauvignon aged in small French oak barrels.

George & Daniel bring the same drive, passion, exactitude & intensity that led these one-time refugees from the Lebanon to forge success in the business world to the cultivation of this land. The estate stands alone at 2,200 feet & is a true contender for ‘first growth’ stature with its soils, aspect & climate. This is partnered with the skill of the brothers in their pursuit of excellence in the vineyard & cellar.
