Week Commencing 27th February

Notre Vin, Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain, CA, 2008

£30 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £198.00

For the month of March, Our Head Sommelier wanted to share a wine from one of the smallest and most boutique winery from Napa Valley. Notre Vin started in 2003, only a few years after May-Britt and Denis Malbec established their wine consulting company, Malbec & Malbec.

Denis Malbec was the third generation of Cellar Masters at Château Latour in Pauillac, France and was actually born in the winery. Due to frost in the early Spring, the 2008 vintage was very small but this wine is considered by the Malbecs as one of their finest vintages.

The grapes come only from the Howell Mountain AVA, in the middle North of Napa Valley. The high altitude offers more concentration of flavours and tannins than the juicer wines made in the valley.

The wine has spent 20 months in new French oak, it has the ripeness and bold characteristics that are typically found in Howell Mountain. It offers a great concentration of dark fruit, as well as a delicate rocky minerality that brings a beautiful balance and almost a savoury character to the wine.

This exceptional wine pairs amazingly well with hearty main courses or as a delicious after dinner drink.
