Nobile is Montemaggiore's own special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from our estate vineyards. Every year the exact blend varies slightly—56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Syrah in 2014—but the synergy between these two varietals always produces an elegant, age-worthy wine.

Tasting Notes
The 2014 Nobile features enticing aromas of brambly blackberry, black cherry and espresso along with hints of cocoa and dried herbs. On the palate, its structure is classic mouth-filling Cabernet, balancing power and elegance, with a smooth and luscious finish.
Winemaking Notes
The Cabernet and Syrah were hand-harvested, and each was fermented separately to accentuate its strengths: the structured complexity of the Cabernet and spicy berry flavors of the Syrah. Two different lots of Cabernet and two of Syrah underwent short cold soaks with a fermentation periods ranging from 14-21 days. After a gentle pressing in a stainless steel basket press in order to limit astringency, the wine aged in French oak barrels, 44% of which were new. The wine was blended in August 2015, and bottled after barrel aging for 19 months.
