Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Sultry aromas of black fruit, damp forest soil, and licorice are followed by flavours of spiced, cooked cherry and fleshy plum with a whisper of green on the finish. Rich and velvety on the palate with a pop of mouthwatering acidity and subtle, soft tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Baco Noir was planted throughout the Okanagan Valley in the 1970s for its hardiness and disease resistance. Most was pulled out in the late ‘80s to make way for the classic European grape varieties. Our neighbor Elmer Eidse kept his. Now these old vines are managed organically to create this delicious wine that is a living history of the British Columbia wine industry. 2019 was a moderately cool vintage in the Okanagan Valley, yielding red wines of balance and freshness.
Winemaker Notes
The wine fermented in a 10,000L oak foudre. Fermentation completed naturally, leaving a hint of residual sugar in the wine. The wine was racked into neutral oak barrels where it rested for 18 months before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Grilled meats, Italian-style dishes, hamburgers, or with a good book next to a cozy fireplace!

I have been a Baco Noir fan since being introduced to it in the Niagara region. This wine surpasses any I have tasted before. Loved it.
