V. Sattui Black Sears Vineyard Napa Valley Howell Mountain Zinfandel - 2008 - 9.0 - James Meléndez

Black Sears Vineyard produces fruit for 7 other wineries and produces a Zinfandel under their own vineyard's name.

1) Robert Craig
2) D-Cubed
3) Elyse
4) Schrader
5) T-Vine
6) Turley

I would love to line up all of these bottles and do a side-by-side tasting. I'm sure there is a common thread but many unique differences based on winemaker's expressions.

I love mountain fruit from Napa Valley and most often expect the Bordeaux crown jewels. And being Zinfandel which is a heritage grape to California.

This wine gives notes of fresh red cherry, autumnal cranberry, white pepper and fennel, scent of lavender and Thyme.
