Product Details

elderberry • truffle • cocoa

Tasting Notes:The 2021 vintage delivers yet another stunning blend with Daou's trademark Pessimist flair. This wine is powerful and intensely aromatic out of the glass, presenting fragrances 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 flavors of black cherry, blueberry creme de cassis, and damp forest floor. Hints of lavender, anise, and black olive complement the rich, ripe fruit flavors. 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. Blend: 76% Petite Sirah, 12% Zinfandel, 10% Syrah, 2% Lagrein Barrel Aging: 10 months in 50% new French oak. (93 pts Wine Enthusiast - Editor's Choice)
