Beekeeper Cellars 2012 Black Sears Vineyard Old Vine Reserve Zinfandel (Howell Mountain)

Nicknamed Black Bee, this hearty, rambunctious old-vine wine is juicy in blackberry and a taste of tar, full-throttled in terms of intensity. White pepper and cinnamon specks provide a spiciness on the palate as the tannins settle in, making way for a fine, leathery finish. Clay Mauritson helped make the wine. Virginie Boone
