Familiar scent of cracked black pepper from Napa County's highest vineyard combine with rich oak and concentrated blackberry fruit as equal partners in this long-finishing 2012 single vineyard Zinfandel.
This wine has impressive structure with firm, gripping tannins, and excellent acidity. What's best about this wine is the impeccable balance it shows off. This is a Zinfandel made in a style that is both restrained and loaded with flavor. The V.Sattui Black Sears Zinfandel is delicious today, however those with patience will be rewarded. This wine is an ager to be sure. It will improve over the next 5-8 years and drink well for at least 4-6 after that.
