Zaca Mesa Mourvedre 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

18 months in oak, 25% new Rather oaky and noticeably raw at that with light toast, vanilla laced black currant and tarry dried meat aromas. Bright and crisp on entry, this is thoroughly medium bodied with lovely, lively, meaty, berry flavors that show a touch of tar and dried plum fruits. Cool, crisp and lightly mineral on the palate this turns dusty and chalky on the long finish that ends with a blip of raspberry juice. Elegant and nuanced Mourvedre with very fine tannins and great acidity. 91pts
