On the nose, aromas of honeysuckle and Mandarin orange hint at sweetness. However, this wine is dry on the palate with notes of ripe peach and melon. A lingering finish has a touch of minerality, a signature characteristic of our vineyard. A natural pairing would be grilled chicken. If you are feeling experimental, try prawns with hazelnut butter.
Zaca Mesa Winery - The original property was purchased in 1972 by a group of young investors with big dreams. They planted the first vineyard in 1973. As the vineyard came into production, a winery was built on the estate in 1978 and later expanded in 1981. Zaca Mesa was one of the first wineries since Prohibition in Santa Barbara County. They still preserve the oldest Syrah vineyard in the central coast of California. Over time the ownership group was reduced to two twin brothers. Zaca Mesa has been family owned for over 15 years. The Cushman family has a passion for winemaking and a long-term commitment to quality.
