Winemaker:
David Lattin
About the Winemaker:
After receiving his Masters of Enology from UC Davis, David Lattin left for France where he worked and studied winemaking in the vineyards of St. Emilion and the cellar at Troplong-Mondot. After returning to the States, he worked as the Enologist at Robert Pecota Winery, then Storybook Mountain Winery, and later, as General Manager/Winemaker of Acacia Winery. In 2002, he took on what first was a consulting job for Kuleto Estate, but he quickly fell in love with the incredibly complex property and has remained there as winemaker ever since. In addition to full-time winemaker at Kuleto Estate, David works with a few custom clients, including Kuleto’s neighboring vineyard, Noble Vineyards. He and proprietor George Noble share the same philosophy when it comes to site selection and winemaking — choose the very best fruit, blend without formulas and cellar the wines for 6+ years before release. They aim to produce a perfectly balanced, food-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon on par with Napa Valley’s best.
Vineyard:
Rutherford and Pritchard Hill
About the Vineyard:
The fruit from Rutherford (60%) is chosen in vintages that appear to be earlier than normal and helps to mitigate the monstrous tannins from mountain fruit in warm years. Pritchard Hill fruit (35%) contributes a prominent and consistent character to Noble Wines Cabernet Sauvignon. Clone 337 provides the intensity and backbone of this vintage, while Clone 7 brings flesh and fruitiness to the wine.  The remaining 5% is Petite Sirah which helps round out the blend’s structure.
Additional Winemaker Notes:

Bud break occurred earlier than many vintners could remember and the trend carried forward throughout the growing season. Heat spikes occurred in June and at scattered intervals throughout the summer season. Growers held on as acid balance eventually caught up. Temperatures were steady into one of the earliest harvests in Napa Valley. Grape quality was very good with a crop that was smaller than average.

  • AGING TIME: 30 Months in 80% French Oak Barrels (50% new)
  • MACERATION: 12 Days
  • Noble consistently holds all wines in the cellar for a minimum of 6 years
  • Cabernets are smooth, perfectly food-friendly and on par with European first growth estates

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pair the 2004 Noble Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled, roasted or stewed beef dishes, and braised lamb or venison. Game meats all pair wonderfully with this wine as do dishes with eggplant, mushrooms or pungent herbs. Also experiment with aromatic cheeses like Roquefort, Blue and Camembert.
