Black Sears vineyard lies nestled high among wild oak forests at the top of Napa valley’s Howell Mountain. There, far above the fog-line, fruit from this organically-certified vineyard is cultivated according to Biodynamic principles and practices.
With its deeply-purpled and opalescent hues, the Estate Zinfandel offers blackberry aromas with hints of both five-spice and clove. On the palate is a full picnic basket of flavors, from herb-crusted roasty-meaty notes to concentrated black fruit accents, all neatly wrapped in silky tannins.
The brisk fruit acidity inspired by the cool mountain air is what keeps the wine bright and toothsome through a long and lively finish. By combining biodynamic vineyard practices with superlative winemaking skills, Black Sears has crafted one of the most concentrated and complex Zinfandels in California.
