Drink now through to 2028. No need to decant before serving.

DAOU is the family winery of brothers Georges and Daniel Daou who searched high and low for the perfect site to found their project in the Napa Valley before finally discovering that Paso Robles had the top quality land they were seeking. The 212 acre estate is located in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles and has been described as “a jewel of ecological elements” by the legendary Californian winemaker André Tchelistcheff.

This corner of Paso Robles offers a unique combination of Napa-like climatic conditions and soils which are rich in limestone like many of France’s top vineyards. These prime conditions allow the Daou brothers to create stunning Bordeaux-style wines which combine Old World elegance with a touch of New World exuberance and innovation.

The Pessimist Red is a powerful blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Tannat which offers an opulent and intense flavour profile bursting with cassis, blackberry, dark cherry and jammy plum notes. The fruit-forward character is complemented by hints of dark chocolate, smoky tobacco, and coffee beans as well as a full body, well-defined tannins, and a hint of freshness which lingers on the palate.
