2012 D Cubed Zinfandel, Napa Valley
2012 was almost a textbook growing season. Nice spring weather for bud break and blooming then a summer of warm days, cool nights and light fog and overcast mornings. This allowed the grapes to ripen evenly and completely with intense flavors and nice balance.
The D-Cubed Cellars Napa Valley Zinfandel has intense aromas of black cherries and plums, with hints of black pepper and tea leaves. Full bodied with supple tannins in your mouth. There is wonderful balance which leads to the long black cherry finish. This wine is tasty!
