Black Prince Non-Vintage Baco Noir

Black Prince Non-Vintage Baco Noir Wine Details
Price: $14.95 per bottle

Description: The 2004 and 2005 vintages have been blended together to give you this pleasant red, with loads of spice, slender feel and soft tannins. Flavours mindful of old world Rhone or Portuguese blend. Plumy and peppery notes. Mid-weight, taut and sourish acidity but not aggressive. Very good length. Now to 2008.

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.
