There’s no question about it: The Black Sears Vineyard is pretty mind blowing. Perched at just around 2,400 feet of elevation on Howell Mountain, it’s a sight to be seen. Rich volcanic soil, cool Pacific breeze and craggy old vines dating back to 1975 make this vineyard THE place to grow hardy Zinfandel.
At first whiff, you get decadent blueberry, ripe brambles and crushed black pepper aromas. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg come together to complete this wine’s wildly enticing fragrance. But, just wait until you try it. This juicy Zinfandel is far from shy, instantly showing off an astonishing smoothness and impressive depth. Succulent black fruit and vanilla flavors follow through to round out a long, rich finish of velvety goodness. It’s downright amazing.
