About Noah

A passion and knowledge for Fine Wines & Craft Spirits

After many years of collecting wine as a hobby, Noah entered the wine industry in 1982, working in wholesale wine distribution. Within a few years, he became an executive at a growing distributorship, where his responsibilities included expanding the product line and increasing wine sales. In this position, he traveled extensively throughout California, France and Italy to find high-quality producers to bring to the NY/NJ market.

Later Noah joined a distributorship that specialized in imported wines to create and manage an American wine division for them. The portfolio he developed included numerous wineries that went on to receive national recognition and acclaim, including some of California’s original “garage wines.”

In 1995, he partnered with a California wholesaler to establish a fine wine distributorship for the metro New York/New Jersey market. After 6 years of growth and success, the company was purchased by Martin Scott Wines where Noah became a senior executive, working with them for 15 years.

In 2017 Noah joined Lieber Fine Wines, to work with the Lieber team to create the company’s California portfolio, now recognized as one of the finest American wine portfolios in the metropolitan area. Throughout his time in the industry, Noah pursued his passion for fine wine, seeking out, introducing and promoting exceptional California wineries. Frequently, his discoveries have become highly sought-after collectibles.

Bevan Cellars

Ontogeny, 2021 Red Wine

Napa Valley

Tasting Notes:
The 2021 vintage is showing so massive on release that it’s giving us 2018 vibes. As usual, it is a blend of all of our best vineyards, although primarily Tench Vineyard. Prominently Cabernet Sauvignon, it shows massive power and is one of our darkest Ontogeny bottlings ever, yet it still retains its complexity with the Merlot and Cabernet Franc additions.  Vibrant blueberry, boysenberry and  créme de cassis with super concentrated fruit, and with the weight and tannin in the back palate that will allow this wine to age gracefully. Deep, dark and powerful.

2022 Tievoli Cabernet Sauvignon

Tievoli Series

Tasting Notes:
Aromas of black pepper and bell peppers, with vanilla and black cherry notes too. It’s a medium bodied wine with a nice smooth finish.
Vineyard Notes:
These Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from the Lodi AVA. Soil type is primary a sandy loam. These vines are sustainable farmed and certified green under the Lodi Rules certification program. The Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot and Merlot were also from the same soil type within the Lodi AVA. They are also certified green/sustainable under Lodi Rules.
Winemaker Notes:
These grapes were hand-picked in the morning and then gently hand sorted and de-stemmed. They were then transferred to individual temperature controlled stainless steel tank for 2 days of cold soak. The must was inoculated with yeast and fermentation was done in tank with regularly timed pump overs. The lots were then combined and aged for 14 months in approximately 14% new French Oak.
