Corot Noir Wine Details
Price: $17.00 per bottle

Description: A full bodied, dry red without oak, aromas of black pepper and clove, with hints of jammy raspberry on the palate, straight from this French hybrid grape.

Varietal Definition
Corot Noir:
Corot noir is the result of a cross between hybrids Seyve Villard 18-307 and Steuben in 1970. It ripens mid-season to late-season, and according to Reisch, its wines "are free of the hybrid aromas typical of many other red hybrid grapes, and can be used for varietal wine production or for blending. The distinctive red wine has a deep red color and attractive berry and cherry fruit aromas."
