Zaca Mesa Z Cuvee United States California Santa Barbara Santa Ynez Valley Red 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This unique blend is inspired by the wines of Côtes du Rhône where they have been blending these varieties together for centuries to create wines that are greater than the sum of their parts. After hand harvesting, the grapes were gently de-stemmed, fermented and barrel aged separately for seven months, and then combined and aged for an additional nine months in French oak barrels.

I stock up on this great value at each vintage release, but the '07 is the best in my experience. A great rhone blend. Lacks in complexity department, but the price and overall quality makes up for it.

Tasting Notes:

Each grape adds its own nuance: Grenache adds rich raspberry flavors; Mourvèdre brings notes of blueberry and pepper; and Syrah, flavors of blackberry and ripe tannins. These layers of flavor enable this wine to pair with a wide variety of foods from mushroom pizza to rosemary crusted leg of lamb. You can enjoy this wine now or cellar for the next five to seven years.
