"Composed of 27%Syrah, 19% Zinfandel and 54% Petite Sirah, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Pessimist delivers a gregarious nose of ripe black cherries, blackberries and blueberries plus notions of Chinese five spice, mocha and raspberries. Full-bodied, voluptuous, soft and plush, it packs in the fruit cake and exotic spices, finishing with great length."

Product Description:

"Intense red fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and rhubarb are complemented by an undercurrent of blue and black fruits; blueberry, blackberry and plum. Accompanying them are mushroom and allspice notes, accented with chocolate and hints of toffee and vanilla. Bright and vibrant on the palate, flavors of cherry, cranberry and pomegranate dance on the tongue. A silky texture coupled with a lovely cinnamon spiciness produces a memorable, mouthwatering sensorial experience. Multilayered and complex, with an extraordinary combination of harmonious flavors and aromas, this wine delivers in exquisite fashion, and the finish is long enough for one to ponder the depth and complexity of the sensations the wine offers." -Winery
