The Pessimist Red Blend 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
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.
A blend of 74% Petite Sirah, 13% Syrah, and 13% Zinfandel, brought up in 60% new French oak, the 2019 The Pessimist gives up loads of sweet blueberries and barbecue notes as well as more violets, spice, vanilla, and candied flower nuances with time in the glass. Beautifully textured and full-bodied, it has a rounded, opulent texture and a great finish. It's a sexy fruit bomb to enjoy over the coming 3-5 years.
