The Speck boys at Pelham have created a cult following for their ‘lowly hybrid’ Baco Noir. A red with a slight bitterness and the rustic feeling of traditional Italian reds. This Old Vines edition is clad in velvet and vanilla and can be poured without fear to all Holiday guests. ‘Ontario’s answer to Rioja’ may be a good pitch. Enjoy with braised meats/spicy stews. Bravo Pelham for this niche offering.
