Estate Baco Noir

Estate Baco Noir Wine Details
Price: $13.99 per bottle

Description: Deep, dense red/purple in colour. The bouquet displays aromas of wild blackberry and blueberry, plum overlaid with vanilla. On the palate the wine is full-bodied but soft with rounded texture and a long, dry finish. Flavours include blueberries and black currant mingled with cedar and vanilla spice. Drinking well now, but will improve and soften over the next 3-5 years.

Varietal Definition
Baco Noir:
BA french-american hybrid grape used to make an intense red wine regarded by some as a good substitute for Cabernet Sauvignon . Capable of aging, its origins trace to the Folle Blanche and a native American strain of grape. Extensively grown in the cool northern regions of N. America.
