Tasting Note: The recently created Speck Family Reserve tier of baco noir features very low yielding vines planted in 1982 in a section of south-facing, clay-limestone vineyard adjacent to Short Hills Provincial Park. (The label doesn't say Short Hills Bench by the way, because VQA rules absurdly dictate that hybrids are not worthy of having their origin pinpointed). It was barrel selected after ageing 18+ months in American oak. The nose is very impressive with generous oak smoke, spice, cigar and pepper nicely married to the blackberry, vaguely beet like aromas of baco. It is full bodied with classic, almost tart-edged acidity. There is moderate, balanced tannin and warming, also balanced 13.5% alcohol. The length is excellent. Decant, serve with rich red meats. Will cellar to 2030. Score - 92. (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Jan. 25, 2017)
