Zaca Mesa Syrah California Central Coast Region California 2006

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

89 points. The nose of this wine is really creamy, big, and rich. Plum and berry preserves mix with allspice and nutmeg and mocha at the core of the aroma. A good spin in the glass opens up an intriguing earthiness, with a rich soil component and a faint note of cacao nibs. Instantly rich and smooth, there is a velvety quality to this wine. Mixed berry preserves and spiced, poached plums combine beautifully with a dusting of cacao powder and raspberry jelly candies. Rose wood and a little burnt caramel and nut brittle appear toward the finish, with a very subtle pastoral herbal quality at the very end. This is a very nice wine, with a good, firm tannin structure and a nice combination of New World ripeness and a subtle Old World dustiness.
