This medium-bodied, dry red wine offers just the right balance of oak, tannin and light acidity to please the palate with its fruit forward blackberry and plum notes.

92pts: 2020 New York Wine Classic: "Stewed strawberries, ground black pepper, and leather, brightened up by violet and vanilla notes on nose. Food friendly acidity on palate, lots of depth of flavor and good concentration. Intriguing balance of fresh fruit and floral notes with earthy mushroom and leather. Medium finish."

Our best-selling red wine at our Tasting Rooms, Baco Noir is a lesser known grape, with a slightly tart taste. Ours is known as our ‘campfire wine’ not only because of the label, but because of its oaky, smokey taste that is perfect when you’re sitting around a fire.
Food Pairing Notes
Try this versatile red wine with BBQ, pizza, smoked cheeses, and chocolate desserts.

My husband and I just finished a bottle of your Baco Noir 2012. We loved it. We bought it one afternoon as we were wine tasting at your store in Lake George. That was a lot of fun, too!

My daughter and I tried this last fall when wine testing. We brought some home and have ordered more since. We can't wait till it's back to stock up.

I prefer white wines over reds but this one is the exception! It is one of the best reds I have had. Took it to family reunion and thought I had enough for me to bring some home.... NOPE. Everyone enjoyed it so I am back for more. Very very smooth and paired with food enhances it greatly. Either way, by itself or with food it is a great pick!

One of the most complex tasting wines I have ever had. Refreshingly different.
