Zaca Mesa Santa Ynez Valley Syrah 2004
from Central Coast, California
Our Syrah displays rich blackberry, cassis and our signature sage spice aromas and flavors. The 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 leg of lamb marinated in rosemary and garlic. However, a peppercorn steak or mushroom risotto would work incredibly well.
"The winery has held this wine back for more than four years before releasing it, with excellent results. However tannic it might have been, it's now a softly lush, complex wine, even a dramatic one. Filled with blackberry, dark chocolate, tangerine zest, violet, anise, leather and tobacco flavors, it's a big wine, but a completely satisfying one." 92 Points
