BACKGROUND

Noble Tree Wines was founded in 2010 to meet the demand for high quality, varietally correct wines at value pricing. The grapes for these wines have been sourced from premium growers in California but increasing demand for Noble Tree Wines resulted in a purchase of two Estate Vineyards, Wickersham Ranch and Chalk Hill Estate Ranch – Russian River Valley from which Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Zinfandel are now produced commencing with the 2013 Vintage.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Harvested at 24.5 brix, this wine was sorted, 18% whole clusters were included, and cold soaked for 5 days. During its 3 week fermentation, gentle punchdowns were performed twice a day each day to ensure bright aromatics and a refreshing palate. Aged for 10 months in neutral French oak.

TASTING NOTES

A very clean iteration of a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, the nose offers bright un-ripened raspberry, rose, and a hint of stoneground 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
