Such an amazing wine for this price! Full-bodied, rich and bursting with berry flavours and smoke. Long finish. Pair with smoked sausages and aged cheddar.

Baco Noir food pairings: aged cheddar, game meats, beef with horseradish or mustard, spicy food or the startling yet remarkably harmonious pairing of strawberries with black berry.

Reviews and Ratings

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Purple in colour with aromas of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and plum. It is full bodied with low tannins, well balanced acidity and teaming with ripe berry flavours. This will pair well with grilled red meats and strong cheeses. A terrific value red. Tasted on July 15, 2018.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This baco noir is warm and has rich black fruits and good acidity. A nice wine to drink in the Fall
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of warm spice, blackberry, plum, and a bit of cedar. Medium bodied, more fruit forward on the palate, with some moderate acidity, and a medium finish. Easy drinking and would be great with hearty meals, braised short ribs, or stews.
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I tasted this side by side with the 2016 Henry of Pelham Baco Noir Speck Family Reserve

Aromas of red fruit, earthiness and smoke. Full-bodied with ripe, fleshy fruit of cherry, toasty oak and vanilla. Smooth finish, balanced acidity, moderate to high tannins. Excellent value at $15!

Enjoy with burgers or BBQed meats.
