The 2013 Peller Estates Baco Noir pours with a deep, dark garnet core that turns bright ruby at the meniscus.
The bouquet shows fantastic aromas of plums, prunes and brackish, wild, Vitis riparia. The texture has a bright, clean, crisp, invigorating and tart entry with tart blue plum flavours that fan across the palate. There's excellent fruitiness.
The texture is warm, balanced, clean and cleansing, with acidity leading and tannin playing back-up.
The finish is crisp all the way across the palate, with a clean and bright personality. There's prune jam and tartness on the finish.
This Baco has 12.5% alc./vol. It costs $10.95 and can be found on regular list at the LCBO. It's bottled with a screwcap closure.
An excellent, clean Baco...at an exemplary price!!
