D Cubed Zinfandel Howell Mountain Napa Valley 2002
D-Cubed is owner/winemaker Duane Dappen's clever rendition of his name and one of the most exciting Zinfandel labels coming out of California today. A portion of the grapes in this wine comes from the vineyard where Brown Estate sources fruit for their Zinfandel that has become one of the most highly-sought-after Zin's in California!This wine is a beautiful example of an extremely well balanced, rich, smooth California Zinfandel that begins with strong blueberry and cinnamon aromas and then achieves an 'elegance' that is rare among Zinfandels. A creamy texture flows smoothly while deep flavors of extracted vanilla, blueberry, and cassis come alive. This wine should mature very well in the next 2 - 3 years but feel free to 'pop the cork' tonight if you cannot resist!
Welcome to D-Cubed Cellars website: a space dedicated to Zinfandel and the enjoyment of life, making wine, spending time with friends and good food. D-cubed Cellars started in 1994 with the Howell Mountain Zinfandel made grapes grown at the Black Sears Vineyard, and now I am we have the wines from our 13th vintage! 2006 was a great year for Napa Valley wines. They have wonderful forward fruit and some structure to keep them balanced and have age ability.
