Region: Napa Valley, CA
To taste this wine, and the whole Noble Wines' line up, alongside Noble Wines' vintner at Napa Valley's famous Meadowood Restaurant is a priceless opportunity.
Dark reddish purple to almost black in the glass, the edges are still vibrantly red and concentrated for a 2005. On the nose, aromas of blackberry, plum, black licorice,and coffee. The palate is so intense and sharp it defies its age. Complex and robust are the flavors of black fruit, leather, lavender, sage and spice. The structure and tannin are in nice balance leaving you with a long satisfying finish.
On the back of every Noble Wine's bottle: "Trying to live up to our name with every vintage. Enjoy"
