"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."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2019 Pessimist is a blend of 74% Petite Sirah, 13% Syrah and 13% Zinfandel, aged 10 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple-black in color, it is scented of warm plums, vanilla bean and cinnamon with plush, ripe black fruits at the core. The palate is full-bodied, grainy and plush with ripe, juicy fruits and loads of sweet spices lingering on the finish. It's an upfront, fruit-forward style that's perfect for drinking straight from bottle over the next 3-5 years."
