The winemaker's 'true love'; the Cuvee Noir is a big and full-bodied wine. Not over the top, but skirting the line beautifully; this wine flirts with power, depth, richness and elegance simultaneously. This harmonious cuvee opens with expansive warm aromas of spices, graham and black fruits with a hint of floral notes. The mouth mirrors the aromas with full flavors of black cherries, blackberries and red currents wrapped within fine and sweet tannins. Perfect for immediate gratification, the Cuvee Noir also exhibits excellent aging potential to 2012.

Winemaker's Notes:

"This wine opens with sweet, ripe and forward high-toned notes of red and black fruits and barrel spices. The warm, soft mouth feel unfolds around flavors of strawberries, red and black currants, blackberries and cherries; all wrapped in well-integrated ripe and rich tannins. A touch of light toast envelopes secondary flavors of spicy oak with fresh, mouth-watering acidity. The finish is supple, vivid and long on the palate. This luscious wine, one of seven different offerings, represents exceptional value as our introductory level Dobbes Family Estate Pinot Noir. The Grande Assemblage Cuvee Pinot Noir flaunts good aging potential and will reach its peak drink-ability from 2010-2012."Winemaker's Notes
