  Zinfandel - Black Sears
The 2004 D-cubed Cellars Black Sears Zinfandel is very spicy with aromas of cloves, blackberry, plum and white pepper. This wine has a nice tannin structure and a wonderful acid balance to keep the wine bright and fresh. There are flavors of blackberry, plum and wild mushrooms. This wine lingers gracefully on the pallet with a smoky-spicy finish.
  Zinfandel - Brown Vineyards
The 2004 Brown Vineyards Zinfandel is the third vintage that I have made this wine. This vintage is the richest and most intense yet. Derived from the extreme southeast tip of an estate vineyard block in Chiles Valley, my partnership with the Brown family has allowed me to source from one of the finest Zinfandel vineyards within Napa valley. This particular piece, the Sugarloaf block, lies directly beneath a steep, north-facing knoll.
  Zinfandel - Howell Mountain
Howell Mountain is an exciting area. The grapes grown up there make intense, complex wines. These wines can have powerful tannins and still have elegance. The combination of complexity and elegance make for wines that go well with food, are enjoyable for both tasting and drinking and will improve with cellaring. These are the reasons why I love to make wines from Howell Mountain. D-cubed Cellars 2004 Howell Mountain Zinfandel has aromas of strawberries and blackberries, with black pepper, vanilla, and wild mushrooms. This Howell Mountain wine has rich body with an exciting structure with some smoothness now that will increase as the wine ages over the next 4-6 years The flavors are blackberries, black cherries and pepper, which carry on through to the finish.
  Zinfandel - Late Harvest (375 ml)
  Zinfandel - Napa Valley
My Napa Valley Zinfandel is a blend of 3 different vineyards, Brown Vineyard, Korte Ranch and Cypress Ranch. These three vineyards all give the wine different characteristics Brown Vineyards adds the Black Cherry and richness to the wine. Korte Ranch adds the classic Raspberry, and spice of Zinfandel, Cypress Ranch adds sage and some structure. These vineyards come together to make a very fun wine to drink! D-cubed Cellars 2004 Napa Valley Zinfandel has black cherry and raspberry aromas with hints of sage and allspice. This wine is smooth and elegant, with the balance and structure to improve with 5 or so years of aging. There are lots of black cherry flavors rounded out with black pepper and allspice. The long fruity finish is very lovely which all add together to make a very pleasurable wine.
