Zaca Mesa Z Three 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

51% syrah, 37% mourvedre, 12% Grenache Toasted nut, present but well balanced oak, hints of black olives and black pepper framing smoky dried meat and wild black plum and berry fruit flood the nose. This is aromatic. . Smooth, rich and powerful on entry, with a mouthfeel supported by fine grained if slightly dry and wood derived tannins and integrated acids. This retains good clarity on the palate, a nice spicy tone on entry then fine wild cherry fruit with raspberry and plum accents. With a bit of air this develops tons of beef jerky on the nose and develops a long finish laced with sweet spices and palate cleansing astringency. Complex and deep. 91pts
