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.
