Noble Wines Spring Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes:
This wine exhibits an opaque purple color and a sweet, ripe, olive, chocolate, slightly smoky cassis-scented nose. e quality of the fruit is even more expressive on the palate as black cherry, jammy black currant, plum and a hint of prune seemingly integrates the stony and mineral components of the wine. Full-bodied with some expressive but soft tannins, this powerful Cabernet Sauvignon will definitely benefit from decanting a few hours before enjoying. Will age 20-25 years without a doubt.

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:
Atlas Peak and Pritchard Hill
About the Vineyard:

The fruit comes mostly from the hillside of Atlas Peak (63%), where the soil is volcanic and very porous, which allows it to cool down quickly despite the increased sunlight. The area has a fairly significant diurnal temperature variation upwards of 30 degrees F between daytime and night. The contributes to the balance of acidity that grapes from this area are known for. The remaining Pritchard Hill fruit (32%) contributes a prominent and consistent character to moderately paced and deliberate ripening and long harvest period. The remaining 5% is Petite Sirah which helps round out the blend’s structure.

Additional Winemaker Notes:
Mid-July presented a record-setting 10-day heat wave, but the canopy had not yet been thinned because of a delayed season and young clusters were shaded from the hot sun. Somewhat cooler weather arrived in August and continued through harvest, allowing for moderately paced and deliberate ripening and a long harvest period.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pair the 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.
