Tasting Notes and Food Pairings:
Aromas and flavours of black cherry, blackberry and damson plums. A soft firmness on the palate with gentle oaky notes. Great for anything barbecued from grilled red meats to juicy hamburgers. Beef stew and hearty pastas with red sauce will be great options for fall and winter dining.
Ron Bertrand Vineyard Manager’s Notes:
2015 came in with some unusually and at times brutally cold weather. By April/May the weather normalized and June gave us plenty of rain. The growing season gave us hope with sunny warm weather which ran into harvest time. This allowed us to get good maturation of fruit.
Roberto DiDomenico Winemaker’s Notes:
Our Baco Noir was harvested on Sept. 24th from vines ranging in age from 12 – 25 years. The grapes were crushed and fermented on the skins for 8 days. The wine was aged in older American oak, to highlight the native fruit characteristics of this wine.
