Vintages Wine Panel: It is still rare in Ontario for a winery to be closely identified with one grape variety; Henry of Pelham and Baco Noir is one such hugely successful association. Years ago, the Speck brothers and winemaker Ron Giesbrecht recognized the potential of this hybrid grape and made it their signature wine. Bursting with wild black fruit, ripe plum, gamey and spicy aromas and flavors that are well complemented by fresh acidity and moderate tannins. Enjoyable now, it will also reward 3-5 years in a cellar. My note: This style of this wine has really evolved over the past few years. No longer a wild, brambly red, it now displays enticing notes of concentrated black cherries, blackberries and purple plums. Full-bodied richness with a warm finish. This wine is part of the Vintages Essentials Collection.
Baco Noir food pairings: venison stew, rustic pasta with spicy heirloom tomato sauce.

Complex representation of this grape - full bodied, dark cherry, plum, cassis, mocha, menthol, cedar, black pepper, leather. I got a lot from this wine!
|Nolan King rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This wine is an excellent pair with game and is a refreshing change from the typical thin ontario reds. Still a bit wild and brambly but i enjoy it that way.
