"Moving to the 2017s, the already bottled 2017 Pessimist is a lot of wine for not much buck. This full-bodied, fleshy, sexy wine gives up lots of black fruits, chocolate, spice, and subtle vanilla notes and certainly put a smile on my face. It’s a pleasure bent, undeniably hedonistic wine to drink over the coming couple of years."
"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
