Winemaker Notes

In 2002, we harvested fruit full of wonderful flavors. The Slaybaugh Ranch is now reaching the full potential that I had anticipated when we planted the vines back in 1997. As always, the Black Sears Vineyard produces incredible fruit with a complexity rarely matched.

D-Cubed Cellars, California
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.

2010 was a long cool vintage. The grape ripened evenly, but was later than usual. As the season stretched out the worry of rain on the thin skinned Zinfandel became greater and greater. We harvested our Zinfandel before any real significant rain hit them and the grapes developed the wonderful fruit of the terrior from each vineyard.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
