  • Or if you're drinking Zaca Mesa or Firestone wines it may actually be from petrol in the watertable since last I visited there were plenty of working wells nearby (enough to make walking to the winery on a hot day smell like they were laying asphalt nearby--which they weren't; just emanations from the derricks).

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • Zaca Mesa Syrah Mesa Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of black fruit on introduction, but, happily, missing the sweet sensation that is usually associated with a fruit forward wine. On the other hand, there seems, in fact to be a slight bitterness similar to unsweetened cocoa, instead. As the wine moves towards the back and the edges of the tongue, refreshing acid tartness causes the bitter... Read More

  • Zaca Mesa Winery Syrah 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Somewhat murky prune color. On the palate, an immediate hit of ripe stone fruitsplum, peach. Sprightly sensation on the tonguelike an astringency or effervescence. Also, a tartness that seems to hit the front of the tongue. Normally, I seem to get that at the back. Some minerally sensations at the back of the palate. A very lengthy, cherr... Read More

I’ll save the few Pinots I Tasted for a Pinot round-up, which might surprise some folks. You see I went to San... Read More

  • Zaca Mesa Black Bear Block Syrah 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Funky and rich on the nose, gamier and more savory than the Mesa Reserva Syrah with a nice black olive aspect and fine briar and smoky overlay. In the mouth this shows impeccable balance, super clarity, and excellent ripeness of fruit. Earthy, gamy and deep with a soft truffle and black pepper overlay to the black cherry and wild raspberry fruit... Read More

  • Zaca Mesa Syrah Mesa Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    21 months 80% newDark with nutty oak top notes and bitter chocolate shavings framed wild blackberry and grilled meaty fruits on the nose. Texturally this is worlds above the Eight Barrel with superb clarity on the palate with just a hint of either youthful or wood induced sweetness. Layers of slightly gamy blackberry and black plum fruits with ... Read More
