The Speck Brothers at Henry of Pelham reign as the Baco Noir kings. Their Reserve Baco is consistently the best in Ontario. This Baco Noir is like Russel Crowe riding a horse through muddy water. Its intense, rugged, and smells like a long wet leather jacket. Pair this with roast beef and saddle up on the 3:10 to Yuma.
Not sure if there's a better Baco noir made on the planet. It rustic but smooth showing sweet and sour cherries, smoky plum, leather, mud, wet leaves -medium to full bodied silky tannins - its beyond well made - it's perfectly balanced & structured. Oh Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa the right stuff!
LCBO Wine Appreciation -Canada 5/8
Had 2010 Vintage
-deep crimson- black cherry,
-do not buy.
Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.
Consistently, Canada’s best Baco Noir is Henry of Pelham’s reserve
Positives: This complex wine features cedar, smoky embers, Gaeta olives, bacon, prunes, dark cherry, strawberry, raspberry, black currants, blueberry, chocolate, Portobello mushrooms & leather. Full body with medium tannins, good acidity and a long length.
Interesting Point: I recommend using a Pinot glass and lightly chill it.
Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with a melody of olives in olive oil.
