Nerd alert! Girardet's Flasgship red. 2011 #UmquaValley Baco Noir from #Oregon. Dark and smoky like Syrah but with a Pinot Noir-like elegance. Plum, black cherry and cranberry mixed with roasted coffee, toasted oak and vanilla spice. Soft and silky. #wine #baco #sommelier #unique

Great summer wine! Full body with a silky, dark fruit on the mouth . Finishes with velvet flavors of coco and very subtle baking spices!
