V. Sattui is one of Napa's most popular wine stops on the Hwy 29 Wine Trail. With $5 tastings, good wine, a delicious deli and gorgeous grounds - it's easy to understand the winery's attraction. If you have a chance to check out V. Sattui's 2007 Black-Sears Vineyard Zinfandel, you won't be disappointed.
Bursting with fresh ground black pepper on the nose and dark cherry and cassis on the palate, this particular Zinfandel showcases a polished balance of power with an undeniable elegance. Bold flavors, juicy fruit well-positioned on solid structure and an opulent finish, make this wine a serious contender for Zin fans.
Pair the 2007 V. Sattui Black-Sears Vineyard Zin with meat, meat and more meat - grilled, stewed, roasted, barbecued or braised, truly just about any full-flavored meat (be it duck, game, beef, lamb or bacon) will work well with this versatile vino.
