Montemaggiore Cabernet-Syrah Blend Dry Creek Valley Nobile 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Nobile is Montemaggiore's own special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from our estate vineyards. Every year the exact blend may vary slightly—the 2007 Nobile is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Syrah—but the synergy between these two varietals always produces a wonderful, age-worthy wine.

Montemaggiore:
We were captivated by the genuine quality of life in Montemaggiore, a small moutain village in southern Italy where organically-grown food and hand-crafted products abound.

We were captivated by the genuine quality of life in Montemaggiore, a small moutain village in southern Italy where organically-grown food and hand-crafted products abound. Our personal Montemaggiore is a small mountainside country estate in Sonoma County where we, the Ciolino family, grow grapes and olives for our hand-crafted wines and olive oils. Our family values are true to our ancestral home, that small mountain village called Montemaggiore Belsito in southern Italy—we live in harmony with the land, keep close family ties, and enjoy wonderful food and festivity. Here in Sonoma County, our dream is to produce exceptional red wines and olive oils, by hand, with pride and personal care. Montemaggiore's mission is to consistently produce world-class Syrahs and olive oils in a sustainable manner. We intend to produce exceptional wines vintage after vintage, attainable with our extraordinary estate grapes. We also intend to be good stewards of the land, growing our grapes and olives using organic and Biodynamic farming practices. Ultimately, we want to produce wine that you are proud to share with your friends and family. Montemaggiore is all about family—and our winemaking family is both small and large. At the core, we are rather small: Vincent the winegrower, Lise the winemaker, Paolo the future winery owner, and Zeppli, our faithful dog. The extended family that helps us fulfill our dreams is very large. Of course our blood relations are too numerous to count (after all, it is an Italian family) living from Italy to Florida to Chicago. But also there's our adopted winemaking family who helps make us successful. We want to say a special thank you to all our family! Tasting Room Due to our secluded spot and small size, we only offer tours and sales by prior appointment. Read less

Tasting Notes:

The 2007 Nobile possesses black cherry and blackberry aromas, underpinned by hints of dark chocolate, cedar, tobacco, and spices. On the palate, its structure is classic Cabernet, along with a voluptuous mouth feel and velvety smooth finish. This wine pairs well with a simple grilled steak, rib roast, butterflied lamb, osso buco, grilled sausage, beef and vegetable stew, roasted squash, and polenta with grilled portobellos.

Nobile is Montemaggiore's own special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from our estate vineyards. Every year the exact blend may vary slightly—the 2007 Nobile is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Syrah—but the synergy between these two varietals always produces a wonderful, age-worthy wine.
