Zaca Mesa and Delta Wholesale, the local distributor, are trying to clear out the remaining inventory of the 2005 vintage to make way for the 2006. Sounds like a car dealer, doesnâ€™t it. This has been one of our most popular syrahs over the last 2 or 3 months. This DOES NOT include the 2006. The 2006 vintage got 93 points from the Spectator, not enough to make a difference. Pre-order price: $19.50 per bottle, $228.00 per case of 12. Weâ€™ll hold this offer open until the close of business Saturday, March 13th. Delivery will be the following week. Email us to let us know how much you want.
