Tasting Notes:

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"

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:
Pritchard Hill and Atlas Peak
About the Vineyard:
On this late-ripening year, the blend includes mountain fruit (48% Pritchard Hill, 47% Atlas Peak in order to keep the overall structure similarly balanced and to avoid any green character sometimes associated with the valley floor. The remaining 5% is Petite Sirah which helps round out the blend’s structure.
Additional Winemaker Notes:

Aged 29 months in 80% French oak barrels (50% new)

Accolades:

Gold medal in the 2013 US National Wine Competition

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Wine made from mountain fruit, particularly from these locations, is so fun to pair with food. The boldness and tannins along with the acidity create a canvas with which to work. Pair with beef, pasta with meat sauce, lamb, hamburgers and mushroom dishes. Serve also with hard aged cheeses like aged Gouda and Parmesan. Rich chocolate desserts create a decadent pairing.
