zm syrah



In 1978, Zaca Mesa pioneered Syrah in Santa Barbara County and became recognized as a world-renowned producer of the varietal. They maintain this commitment through vineyard experimentation, including new high-density plantings with multiple Syrah clones. This diversity of vine age and clones combined with our soil and climate delivers a Syrah with complexity, balance, and depth. The Syrah is bold and complex, a perfect reflection of the vintage and our estate vineyard. Concentrated black fruits are outlined by fresh churned soil, wild herbs, and smoked meat. The dense middle palate texture is framed by firm chewy tannins that carry lingering flavors of vibrant blackberry and sweet oak spice. A touch of Mouvedre and Viognier added.
