2008Zaca Mesa Reserve Syrah

Shiraz-California-Other Central Coast

This Syrah is from our Meas Block planted in 2004. After hand harvesting, the grapes were sorted, destemmed and fermented in small open-top bins where the skins were punched-down by hand three times a day to develop rich color and fine tannins, then placed into new French oak barrels for 26 months. This wine displays rich blackberry, cassis, mocha, cedar and our signature sage spice aromas and flavors. This full-bodied wine should be enjoyed over the next ten years.

"This bottling has been a real success for Zaca Mesa. It's a vibrantly fruity Syrah, packed with sweet cherries and blackberries, with a meaty, umami spiciness suggesting grilled bacon. Deliciously soft, it's best consumed over the next few years."
