    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Syrah displays rich blackberry, cassis, espresso, mocha and our signature sage spice aromas and flavors. The silky finish lingers from the ripe tannins and smoky oak. This full-bodied wine should be enjoyed over the next ten years. A traditional pairing for this wine is a rack of lamb marinated in rosemary and garlic. However, a peppercorn steak or mushroom risotto would work incredibly well.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Tight and beefy, with focused blueberry and wild berry flavors that are spicy and complex. Full-bodied, with a hint of stewed plum and wild berry peaking through on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

    This is Zaca Mesa’s basic Syrah, and it’s quite a good wine. Dry and rich in tannins, it’s showing complex flavors of black currants, black pepper, violets and cedar, with a meaty, leathery edge. Now through 2010.

    Overall I enjoyed this wine, definitely worth buying at least once. Red fruit on the nose, strawberries and raspberries. Spicy but not overpowering. If we could give half stars I would have given this wine 3 and 1/2 stars.

    A soft, smooth, but full-bodied wine. And, an incredible value that feels far more expensive.

    It all and more you would expect from a Syrah, strong color, and fruit and dry fruit flavors, and some caramel that lingers after you drink it... but with an overall round taste. Great alternative for a cab.
