This delightful everyday dry red wine comes from a relatively new hybrid wine grape variety developed at Cornell University’s New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. Noiret is one of the best among the latest generation of high-quality hybrids that are achieving character and refinement on par with traditional European Vitis vinifera varieties. A definite must-try. Our vintage was aged for 10 months in American oak barrels, adding depth to its berry, black pepper, and mint characteristics. Its smooth tannin finish complements classic Italian dishes or hot and spicy meals such as blackened fish or jambalaya.
