2016 Inniskillin Baco Noir (Ontario VQA)
This Baco pours with a dense black-cherry colour that fades to medium-deep magenta at the meniscus. The initial aromas are of blue plums with a slight overlay of peppercorns—classic Baco. The entry is very supple with balanced acidity (the mildest of any Baco I've tasted) and a broad warmth from the 13% alc./vol. On the palate, the acidity remains mild but cleansing, as it works its way to the back of the palate. The finish is short and clean.
It's a good Baco that retails on general list at the LCBO now as well (limited availability), for $15.95 CAD.
I still would like to see Inniskillin bring back their Foch!
