Noiret Wine Details

Description: A full-bodied, richly colored red wine that resembles a Shiraz, our medium toast French oaked Noriet pairs well with beef, pasta, or sharp cheeses.

Varietal Definition
Noiret is the result of a cross between hybrids NY65.0467.08 and Steuben in 1973. It ripens mid-season, and according to Reisch, its wines "are free of the hybrid aromas typical of many other red hybrid grapes. The distinctive red wine is richly colored and has notes of green and black pepper, with raspberry and mint aromas, and a fine tannin structure."
