Zaca Mesa 2013 Syrah Estate

92 Points by Wine Enthusiast:

Purchased in 1972 by John Cushman and five friends, the first vines were planted a year later in 1973. Only the third winery in Santa Barbara County at that time, Zaca Mesa became a Santa Barbara County “vineyard wildcatter”- experimenting with many varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Chardonnay to see what would work. After several years of trial and error, Syrah was planted in 1978. Unbeknownst to the early winemaking team at the time, this block would become what is today the renown Black Bear Block, the oldest Syrah block in the Central Coast. 750 ML

Dried blueberry, leather, soy and pepper notes show on the nose of this bottling from the region's Syrah pioneer. The palate is very dry and brimming with deep purple flower, black fruit and herb flavors.
