Rustic, with rough-hewn mineral, dried berry, sage, roasted herb and road tar flavors that provide a measure of complexity, depth and focus. Drink now through 2016.

The 2007 Syrah has a much more saturated ruby/purple-tinged color, more sweet black currant and cherry fruit in the nose, slightly more texture and richness, and overall displays the superiority of this vintage in the Central Coast. Drink it over the next 1–2 years.

A bit more rugged and rustic than Zaca Mesa’s more expensive ’07 Syrahs, and also somewhat less ripe. But it’s a dry, rich and smoothly textured wine, good for drinking now.

Winemaker's Notes:

After hand harvesting and sorting, the grapes were destemmed and placed into small open-top bins to cold-soak for several days and then to ferment. During fermentation, the rising grape skins were punched down twice a day resulting in wine of intense color, rich flavors and fine tannins. This wine was aged for sixteen months in French oak barrels; 30% of them were new.

Tasting 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. Grilled meats and bold cheese will also pair well.
