“A PESSIMIST IS NEVER DISAPPOINTED.”

Pessimist Bottle Shot

The Pessimist is a blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Tannat.

Pessimist Bottle Shot

In a pursuit to create delicious wine inspired by varieties that flourish in Paso Robles, The Pessimist is a blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Tannat. Sourced and crafted by the DAOU Vineyards winemaking team, this wine demonstrates classic old world style with the fruit-forward characteristics of California.

OUR MISSION IS TO CREATE AN AUTHENTIC BLEND THAT EVEN A PESSIMIST WILL LOVE.

"Created and run by Georges and Daniel Daou, this is a no expense-spared operation and they’re producing first-class wines."
–The Wine Advocate

“In only a few years, DAOU has established itself as not only one of the most significant producers in Paso Robles, but a winery whose astonishing breadth of successes has justifiably earned it a place among the very best in the state.”
-The Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine
