ESTATE CHARDONNAY RESERVE NOBLE RANCH
Russian River Valley
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
The Vineyard is located in the Chalk Hill – Russian River Valley AVA, in the town of Windsor. Planted in the mid-1970s, the Vineyard is sited in a North-South orientation and is home to 17 acres of old-vine Noble Tree Chardonnay and five acres of old-vine Noble Tree Zinfandel. The vineyard is a classic valley floor site with alluvial soils exhibiting the dry, silty, loamy sand and gravel characteristics of an ancient riverbed and provides a perfect site to produce grapes for high-quality wines with varietal distinction.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
