Noble Vines The One Black is a full-bodied wine, brimming with exuberant aromas of cassis, blueberry and a hint of cedar. Firm tannins support rich, dark, concentrated flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, chocolate-covered cherry and baking spice, leading to a long finish.
For The ONE Black, we chose vine stocks with diverse origins – the Rhone Valley (Syrah), Tullins, France (Petite Sirah), California (Zinfandel) and Bordeaux, France (Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon). The blend changes from vintage to vintage, but there is one unifying trait: dark fruit character.
A small but defining component in The ONE Black is Petite Sirah, which is also the ‘secret weapon’ in some of Napa Valley’s most highly esteemed wines. This relatively new variety is a crossbreed between Rhône varieties Syrah and Peloursin, created by French nurseryman Francis Durif in the 1870s. Petite Sirah's only 'petite' characteristic is the compact size of the berries. It was planted in California in the late nineteenth century, to lend structure and body to the widely grown Zinfandel blends that were popular in that era. How pleasing it is that these varieties come together again, in Noble Vines’ highly expressive The ONE Black.
