Description

"D-cubed Cellars Howell Mountain Zinfandel has aromas of raspberry, and dark cherries with white pepper and hints of wild mushrooms. This Howell Mountain wine has rich body and medium-full tannins that fill the mouth nicely. There are wonderful flavors of raspberries, porcini mushrooms and cigar box. The wine finishes long and rich with flavors of berries and cedar." -Winery

WINERY:
"D-cubed Cellars started in 1994 with the Howell Mountain Zinfandel made grapes grown at the Black Sears Vineyard. In 2010 D-cubed Cellars was called a Top Artisan Winery by Wine and Spirits Magazine, a wonderful honor. 2008 was an interesting year where patience was rewarded. It was a year of late rains in the spring and this put the grapes behind, but the long cool summer helped ripen Zinfandel into wines with lovely fruit, subtle tannins and wonderful spice.. Having 5 Zinfandels from this vintage demonstrates how well Zinfandel displays its terrior and how versatile Zinfandel can be!" -Winery

WINEMAKER:
"After graduating from UC Davis, I went to work as a cellar worker at Grgich Hills Cellars. There, alongside four other UC Davis graduates and Mike Grgich, I learned the critically important winery production processes for producing ultra premium wines. This was all about cleaning barrels, endless pump overs, lugging scores of hosing, racking wine and a multitude of additional chores that must be done to produce a fine wine. Grgich Hills was a great place to begin a winemaking career as I was surrounded by passionate, innovative peers and shown what it takes to build a great wine."

"In 1989 I moved north, as cellar master to one of Napa Valley's renowned Zinfandel producers, Jerry Seps' Storybook Mountain. The move to a much smaller operation afforded me the opportunity to oversee nearly all production aspects at the winery. This four-year, Zinfandel-intensive tenure was incredibly valuable to my winemaking career. The year 1993 brought me to Rombauer Vineyards where I began as cellar master but quickly rose to assistant winemaker...In 1998 Frank Family Vineyards offered me the opportunity to be winemaker. I produced an amazing array of wine brands including Rombauer, Frank Family still and sparkling wines and many different boutique wineries. I could not have asked for a more broad and varied foundation from which to launch my own brand." -Winery
