  • Zaca Mesa Eight Barrel Syrah 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose nose with a funky blend of soil, oak, and savory Syrah fruit rich in white pepper, dark fruit, and hints of truffle and pencil lead. Elegant if just a bit on the soft side in the mouth with lots of fine grained sweet tannins supporting a big gamy midpalate that shows hints of pepper and spice in a rather integrated and supple s...

  • Zaca Mesa Mourvedre 2010

    Snoothrank:

    18 months in oak, 25% newRather oaky and noticeably raw at that with light toast, vanilla laced black currant and tarry dried meat aromas. Bright and crisp on entry, this is thoroughly medium bodied with lovely, lively, meaty, berry flavors that show a touch of tar and dried plum fruits. Cool, crisp and lightly mineral on the palate this turns ... Read More

  • Zaca Mesa Roussanne 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky oak laced nose with a smoked meat, prosciutto aroma over dark, slightly dried tart, astringent fruit. While a bit soft on entry, this turns broad and round in the mouth with a creamy if clear midpalate. The oak adds plenty of spice to the midpalate and the backend, which is a little short with a hint of burnt orange rind. This is soft, cr... Read More
