Food Pairings for Zaca Mesa Z Three Estate Grown and Bottled Santa Ynez Valley Red
As I realize I am strongly becoming a fan of the Rhone style wines, this Santa Barbara GSM delivers a bevy and multitude of seductfully elegant flavors. First home-winery personal trade and for the experience and passion exuding from the visiting TR associate we will definitely visit the Zaca Mesa Winery.
Not worth the price
This special blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Grenache represents the best of our vineyards while capturing the individual characteristic of each grape variety. The grapes were hand harvested, fermented and barrel aged separately for 7 months, then combined and aged for an additional 14 months in French oak barrels.
Each grape variety adds its own personality: Syrah adds flavors of blackberry and ripe tannins; Mourvèdre brings notes of blueberry and full mouth-feel; and Grenache adds lush raspberry liqueur flavors. These rich layers of flavor create a wine greater than the sum of its parts and enable it to be enjoyed now or cellar for five to seven years.
1253 cases produced.
Aged 21 months in French Oak.
Notes: 50% new French oak barrels
