UnwindWine: Zaca Mesa Inceptive Red


Zaca Mesa Inceptive Santa Ynez Valley Estate Vineyard Rhone Red Blend 2018 with home grilled pizza

We discovered, tasted and signed up for the wine club for this wine portfolio during our Zaca Mesa Estate Winery and Vineyards Visit on the Santa Maria Valley Foxen Canyon wine trail during our Santa Barbara County Wine Experience this spring.

We just received our wine club fall allocation this week and were eager to try two new labels so opened this tonight with home grilled pizza.

2018 Inceptive is a blend of Rhone varietals Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, aged in a
combination of neutral oak barrels, Italian concrete tanks, and amphora
It was rated 92 points by Antonio Galloni, and 90 points by Wine Enthusiast
and Wine & Spirits.

This was dark garnet purple colored, medium bodied, a bit of alcohol heat that may burn off over time, tight black berry and black plum fruits with tongue puckering dry chalkiness with notes of cola, charred bacon meats, tobacco and tangy dry smoke.

RM 89 points.
