    27% cabernet franc, 23% syrah, 16% cabernet sauvignon, 16% merlot, 14% noiret, 4% pinot noir.... everything but the kitchen sink in this non-vintage meld.Nice fruit up front and more complexity than expected in the middle and finish. A nice finger lakes red. Long live Red Newt! Read More

  • Noiret Wine Dry American


    I bought two bottles of Arbor Hill 2007 Noiret. I was interested in this grape as I thought it might grow well in Oregon and require less spray and maintenance than the pinot noir that I currently grow.I had several friends over for a tasting and the disappointment for universal. It begins with a nice peppery note and then quickly fades into th... Read More

  • All - I'm curious to know if anyone has tried and analyzed any of the grapes ... released three new grapes-'Noiret'™, 'Corot noir'™ and 'Valvin Muscat'™ to address funkiness in cool-climate American hybrids and improve their viability in those regions (hopefully improve taste, too).'Noiret'™, 'Corot noir'™ and 'Valvin Muscat'™are the seventh, ...

    There's potential here. A dark, inky wine with smooth tannins. Maybe a bit over oaked but overall a nice wine. Read More

  • Arbor Hill Noiret Wine-Dry-American Rouge NV


    This varietal has great potential. It can be drunk now, but it may take 7-10+ years in the bottle to begin to show it's true character. This wine is going to be big, especially for the North-Central and Eastern markets. The West will not be able to produce this wine.
