2015 Baco Noir
This wine displays a dense garnet color and a wild bramble berry aroma, with complex notes of clove, tobacco, and cedar. A silky smooth mouthfeel opens with plum and blackberry. Rich flavors coat the palate with dark fruits and hints of vanilla and caramel. Finishes with red cherry. Very food friendly. The Baco Noir vine originated in Bordeaux in the late 1800s and was named after its creator, Francois Baco. It is a hybrid of Folle Blanche and Vitis riparia. The vine was pioneered in Oregon, in the 1970s, by Girardet.
