Jeb Dunnuck Review
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. Drink now-2025.
The Pessimist is everything you have come to expect from this beloved red blend. Intense aromas of blueberry, black raspberry and currant are complemented by hints of cherry, rhubarb and plum. Trailing scents of mushroom and allspice are followed by suggestions of chocolate, toffee and vanilla. The palate is bright and vibrant, revealing flavors of cherry, cranberry, plum, raspberry and pomegranate. A silky texture unfolds with layers of complexity, accentuating the rich fruit with a gentle spiciness and subtle earthiness. Powerful and harmonious, this wine delivers a heady sensory experience all the way through a long finish of blueberry and black cherry.
