The Daily Post Attempt: Today Noble Hill Cab ‘05

I find it very easy to drink wine every day. I find it quite difficult to blog every day. I also seem to start meandering and end up with a post that is longer than it should be, without saying enough. So another attempt at daily posting. Last night it was the Noble Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2005. It was far better than their website which doesn’t seem to have been updated, they have gone through a major relabeling which has skipped the website. No matter.

The 05 Cab is drinking well but I could give it a couple more years. Good acidity gives an elegance and freshness. Fine tannins and overall balance and structure was a relief after all the fruit bombs I have had to drink recently. The usual dark berries with hints of tar are about for this one, finishing with a bit of coffee and pecan nuts. Definitely up for a good steak, but to be honest I enjoyed this one on its own. Class act. If the fruity-tooty-drink-now Cab’s I’ve had lately are like Kate Hudson : good looking, palatable, sure, I’ll watch her, fine, but at the end of the day she is in too many shitty films to have the class of, say, Claire Danes, racier, more elegant, and far more memorable. This was a Claire Danes wine.

Did that make little sense? Probably, but it’s what came to mind.

  1. Love the Cab as well. Merlot suburb! Basically all their wines are fab and very well priced for what you get. To top it all, their packaging is better than any Louis Vuitton bag 🙂

    If you haven’t been to the estate, GO! One of my personal Top 5 wine estates in the country.

  2. Thanks for the review: glad you enjoyed the wine! Apologies about our web site: it is terrible! We are working on putting a new one up in a couple weeks’ time.

    Best, K. Austin Tillery

  3. Your wine makes up for the website. Only advice would be for it to be as up to date as your re-labelling vibe. The site is mixing up both labels which is confusing to the consumer. We only want to see Nobel Hill.

  4. Thank you for your lovely review.
    It is music to my ears.

    I like the personification of Claire Danes – her strong characteristics definately makes an impact.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. Big improvement. I love the background at the top, it gives you guys the best boxes in the business. Next Noblehill luggage.
