Many rock stars have bought a winery, but Zac Brown (b. 1978) has more motivation than many - he started his career with a restaurant (with live music by himself), "Zac's Place" in Georgia. The sale of it gave him money for the tour bus - and the rest of rock history, which includes countless awards and hits, not least "Uncaged" - which was so successful that he was able to buy a winery, which naturally got this name on the label! On the new label is an owl, which for him is the guardian of the vine and part of the mystery of a wine - and chosen as the name for his "the Owl" tour!
Zac makes the wine together with winemaker John Killebrew from the Delicato family. The quantities are limited, the style is uninhibited fruit, fullness and finesse - "Uncaged"! The red blend is for me the funniest wine, drier and more edible than the standard zin from California.
“Wine has always been important to me because it brings people together and connects them with the bounty of the land. I’ve always believed in putting everything you have into what you create. When you make something you are proud of, there is a special reward in being able to share it with family and friends. "- Zac
Ratings: 91p / TastingPanel: "Blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Merlot are in harmony for a boldly crafted red. Pervasive and concentrated aromas of dark plum and cedar-dark chocolate. What a luscious entry; brilliant violet-blackberry preserves. Creamy, and packed with generous notes of fennel, chocolate mint and a lick of salinity. "
91p / WineEnthusiast. "Dark garnet in the glass, commanding aromas of blueberry, caramel and toasted oak preview a bold, mouth-filling palate stacked with concentrated layers of ripe dark fruit, black cherry and milk chocolate. Robust and full-bodied with excellent weight in the mid -palate, this complex wine leaves a lasting impression with a smooth, round and full finish ".
Perfect now, but maybe better in a few years, durable 10 years. 14.5% alk, 75cl.
Grapes: 100% North Coast, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Malbec (Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino). The wine is stored in French and American oak.
California has some of the finest land in the world for growing grapes. We’ve sourced from a range of sub-appellations and growing conditions, and from a diversity of sites. Our Z. Alexander Brown Proprietary Red Blend achieves complexity and real dimension. We met at Zac’s home for the final blending session and came away with a lush, mouth filling wine that is smooth and round with a generous finish. "—John Millebrew, vinmager.
