Tasting Notes:

With grapes from Prichard Hill and other notable vineyard locations, the pedigree of this wine sets the tone for what the glass will reveal. And for those who have tasted a Noble Wines Cabernet Sauvignon, they are hooked. Always aged to perfection before George Noble releases to the public, this is the most requested wine on Cellar Angels with customers clambering for the next vintage each year. Internally, we battle over who gets to write the tasting notes. It’s my pleasure to share my thoughts on this 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon.

A deep ruby colored wine, opaque at the center and concentrated all the way to the edge. The aromatics reveal intense dark red fruits, baking spices, and dried herbs. The flavors uncover blackberry, plum and cranberry at first, making way for vanilla spice and cocoa, followed by cigar box and hints of eucalyptus. It is balanced and well-integrated with a long, lingering enjoyable finish.

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.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pair the 2012 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.
