Winemaker:

David Lattin

About the Winemaker:

After receiving his Masters of Enology from UC Davis, David Lattin left for France where he worked and studied winemaking in the vineyards of St. Emilion and the cellar at Troplong-Mondot. After returning to the States, he worked as the Enologist at Robert Pecota Winery, then Storybook Mountain Winery, and later, as General Manager/Winemaker of Acacia Winery. In 2002, he took on what first was a consulting job for Kuleto Estate, but he quickly fell in love with the incredibly complex property and has remained there as winemaker ever since. In addition to full-time winemaker at Kuleto Estate, David works with a few custom clients, including Kuleto’s neighboring vineyard, Noble Vineyards. He and proprietor George Noble share the same philosophy when it comes to site selection and winemaking — choose the very best fruit, blend without formulas and cellar the wines for 6+ years before release. They aim to produce a perfectly balanced, food-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon on par with Napa Valley’s best.
About the Winery
Noble Wines
Hold and age! That method is rare, but successful for George and Patricia Noble of Noble Wines in Napa Valley. Both admirers of the sophistication a well aged wine reveals, they made the decision from the start to hold back releasing wines until they are ready to drink.
