Noir is our flagship; a way to really showcase Riverbench Vineyard.
Each year, we carefully select the clones and barrel lots
that will make up this bottling so that it combines the best
qualities of all different parts of the property. The 2014 harvest
came upon us early and proceeded quickly, with everything coming
into the winery in about ten days from start to finish. But we
didn’t hurry this wine along; it received plenty of time in barrel
to develop amazing complexity and deliciousness. The palate boasts
juicy red fruit flavors that meld nicely with a hint of our
signature Riverbench smoke and clove. Try it with barbecued salmon
with blackberry sauce or anything that involves mushrooms.
