Zaca Mesa 2001 The Mesa O & N Syrah (Santa Ynez Valley)

It's fascinating to taste this side by side with Zaca Mesa's Black Bear Block bottling. This one is certainly drier and a lot more tannic, and requires more patience. From entry to finish it's a bit numbing, but those cassis, blackberry, cherry and coffee flavors, plus the overall balance, bode well. Hold until 2007.
