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.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Harvested at 24.5 brix, this wine was sorted, 18% whole clusters were included, and cold soaked for five days. During its three week fermentation, gentle punchdowns were performed twice a day each day to ensure bright aromatics and a refreshing palate. This wine is aged for ten months in neutral French oak.

TASTING NOTES

A very clean iteration of a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, the nose offers bright fresh raspberry, rose, and a hint of stone-ground cinnamon. The surprisingly luscious palate displays strawberry, pomegranate, and violet. The wine finishes with a hint of vanilla, subtle tannin with a bright and satisfying acidity.
