Noble Vines No1 Blend (TWELVE BOTTLES)

Producer

Noble Vines

Vineyards

The 181 Merlot clone is valued for its late-blooming nature which results in nicely even fruit that ripens consistently. In the glass, 181ís hallmark characteristics are rich fruit framed by pillowy-soft tannins with a hint of minerality. 337 Cabernet Sauvignon berries are noticeably smaller than average, which results in longer hangtime, smaller yields and more concentrated flavors. Our Zinfandel is the Costamagna selection. Over a century ago the Costamagna family planted a Zinfandel vineyard in the sandy, alluvial soils of what is now known as Lodiís Mokelumne River AVA. This clone is what gives Lodi Zinfandel its distinct ripe, bright fruit, and jammy profile.

Tasting Notes

Noble Vines 1 Red Blend is a medium-bodied wine with balanced acidity and supple tannins. On the nose, rich aromas of blackberry and black cherry mingle with hints of toasty oak and spice. The dark fruit flavors carry through to the palate ending with a touch of pepper. The wine is a blend of dark red varieties; the selection varies from vintage to vintage to obtain the most delicious blend from each harvest. Merlot and Zinfandel lend fruit forward notes and soft tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon provides dark cherry flavors and firm structure. Malbec and other red varieties may also be included in the cuvee for additional complexity. Delivery Normally 2/4 days
