Winemaker Notes

The married varietals express red and black fruit flavors, a wide array of spices, and big, silky textures. The Grenaches forward rich aromas of raspberry jam and the Counoises distinct strawberry and ripe cherry nuances blend perfectly with the Cinsauts plush mid-palate contribution of plums, spice and a silky mouth-feel. Typically as the wine ages, these aromas evolve into eucalyptus and sagebrush fragrances which mimic the vineyards surrounding landscape. The black fruit flavors, anise, and earth tones come from the Mourvedre and the Syrah. Both give this wine a firm backbone of rounded tannin around a textured and densely layered middle.

Enjoy this wine with your Thanksgiving meal, unique in its ability to match with almost any foods flavor or spice. Spicy Penne Puttanesca, Santa Maria Tri-Tip and seared tuna are all favorite matches with the Z Cuvee. Our 1997 Z Cuvee is delicious to drink now, but will continue to improve over the next 10 years. Buy a case and watch it age!

Video of winery

Established in 1973, Zaca Mesa is a family owned and operated winery with a long-standing history in Santa Barbara County. As the first vineyard to plant Syrah in the area in 1978, Zaca Mesa has since helped pioneer the Santa Barbara Rhône movement through an unwavering dedication to Syrah. Combining traditional Old-World winemaking practices with innovative farming and vineyard techniques, Zaca Mesa continues its legacy as a producer of high quality California Rhône-style wines that are true reflections of the vineyard and appellation.
