Zaca Mesa Syrah Santa Barbara County Black Bear Block 2003
Zaca Mesa Winery, located in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County, California, is dedicated to estate grown and bottled Rhône varietal wines. They hand craft their wines with integrity using traditional methods from grapes sustainably grown in their vineyard. Since 1973, they have farmed and nurtured their vineyard to produce wines that are true to the unique spirit of their land.
Dark inky purple. Nose of burnt rubber, earth and a hint of berry fruit. On the palate, somewhat harsh on the attack, with bitter blackberry fruit, earth, tar and drying tannins on the finish. Seems like this is past its drinking window. Disappointing...
