Red blends can run the full range- too harsh, too much tannins, not enough fruit, and on and on. Noble Vines 1 fits in to none of these categories. The blend is spot-on, with just the right amounts of Merlot (the wine's main grape), Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Malbec.
Noble Vines 1 is a premier red wine blend that celebrates the best of the best wine stock grown in the Delicato family's California's vineyards. This elegant red wine shows subtle tannins, balanced acidity, is medium-bodied. Aromas of lush black cherry, blackberry and toasty oak along with hints of spice greet you on the nose. Carrying through with perfection on the palette, these dark fruit flavours end with a long, lingering finish with just the right hint of black pepper.
Leading the way in the blend is Merlot, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, then Zinfandel. Zinfandel and Malbec are perfect additions to this fruit-forward blend, bringing just the right amount of softness, taking the edge off the Cabernet and Merlot.
