This wine is deeply extracted and displays aromas and flavors of ripe blackberries, robust coffee, cassis, tobacco, and smoky oak as well as our signature sage spice. This wine is dense and bold with a commanding presence on the palate and a finish that lingers.
93 points, Wine Enthusiast (November 2009): “What a roll Zaca Mesa’s been on with Syrah. Their ’06 Reserve is dark, rich and impressive, with chocolaty flavors of ripe blackberries, mulberries, violets, teriyaki-glazed beef, cedar and black pepper. Dry and tannic, but supple enough to drink now.”
92 points, Food & Beverage World (February 2, 2010): “This is a layered, well-balanced Syrah...Dark fruit dominates the palate, with soft notes of pepper, earth and cedar melding together on the light, dry finish.”
91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (3/10): “Incredibly expressive, intense, spicy, blackberryish, slightly jammy and loaded with varietal nuances of pepper and game, this wine holds nothing back in its aromas, and if not as bold as its 15.0% alcohol might suggest..."
