This wine has impressive structure with firm, gripping tannins, and excellent acidity; benefits of Napa County's highest vineyard which is also biodynamically farmed and certified organic. 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’ll improve over the next 5-8 years and drink well for at least 4-6 after that.

Black Sears produces the premier Zinfindel grape!!! Taste this one last as all the others will not live up to the depth of a Black Sears grape.
