BACKGROUND

Noble Tree was originally founded as a passion project by two sommeliers/restaurateurs to produce wines for their fellow industry friends. Production began as a true “garagistes-négociant” style winery, focusing on healthy vineyard sources, hand-harvesting and honest winemaking practices. In 2019, Marc D. Taub of Taub Family Vineyards became proprietor of Noble Tree, upholding the mission and essence of the winemaking philosophy: to respect the varietal character and reflect the vineyard site and vintage conditions in each wine.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

This wine sourced entirely from the Wickersham Ranch Vineyard which is located in northwest Sonoma county, wedged between the Rockpile AVA and the Sonoma Coast AVA. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot and Malbec at an elevation of 2,200 feet on a western facing slope. The vineyard is one of the most remote sites in all of Sonoma County and offers the ideal microclimate to grow grapes for the production of mountain Cabernet Sauvignon of the highest quality.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Harvested at 26.5 brix, sorted and cold soaked for five days, this wine was fermented with native yeast. Aged for ten months in 40% neutral French oak, 60% stainless steel.

TASTING NOTES

A beautiful, classic cool-climate, mountain-grown 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of lead pencil, and spiced red fruits. Flavors of currant, blackberry, black pepper with a chalky texture. Finishes with notes of white pepper and cranberry with well-defined tannins.
