Come and get it!

Baco Noir Old Vines 2010 vintage is now available. This is a tremendous vintage of this very special wine. The 2009 edition won a Bronze at the Dallas Morning News and New York Internation Wine competitions this years. But it also garnered some great reviews:

"Whenever I open a dark red wine and smell aromas of tobacco, leather and some damp soil, I know I am in for a treat. That is what I got. Seconds on the sniffing brought out some black cherry and plums and hints of cranberry and vanilla. Very pleasant taste of dark berries, black plum, some tobacco or herbal and a bit of pepper. A nice finish, not overly long, was dry with blackberry, cranberry and a touch of pepper with some hints of chocolate.
The Hudson-Chatham Old Vines Baco Noir 2009($28) is one of the best New York red wines I have tasted in a long time. "
- Joe Shico, Why Wine Blog

"My second Baco Noir of the #TasteNY event this one comes from 60 year old wines and is darker hued. It immediately shows more depth on the nose and palate. Fruit is a bit richer with black sour cherry notes with soft, earthy forest floor undertones. Acid less but still lively. Given the persistent acidity this one has a nicer mouthfeel than one might expect. As with the “Reserve” the oak is well managed. A fresh, nuanced offering with a nice tang on a finish that linger shortly with gentle tannins. Make sure you are paying attention or you'll get some surprise sediment on the bottom like I did. If you’ve never had Baco Noir and are keen to try new things, like me, this is a well spent $19 bones…"

"The second wine featured the Hudson-Chatham 2009 Baco Noir Old Vines. Also available for $19 in the tasting room, 150 cases were produced. The Baco Noir Old Vine comes from 60 year old vines from the Masson Place Vineyard. Layers of dark fruit and spice on the nose. Flavors of black cherry, raspberry and a touch of earth. A food-friendly wine that drank well over several days.

The tasting and especially Hudson-Chatham Winery opened several eyes to Baco Noir and the Hudson River Valley region. I’ll raise a glass to that. Cheers!"
