2005 Riverview Baco Noir – Canada, Ontario, Niagara Peninsula, Niagara-on-the-Lake VQA
Wine Rating: 90
Uncorked: 2007.08.12 – Back deck with Neil & Heather
What a pleasant surprise when I discovered Niagara, Ontario wines. There is something special going on in this region with varietal wines. And this Baco Noir is no exception. Deep red color. Sweet berry aromas and flavors — cherry, red raspberry and even blueberry — mixed with spice and subtle earthiness. Soft tannins and a rich texture make a nice mouthfeel and a lingering finish. Multi-layered and interesting. Nice drinker.
