Baby Duck is a brand of sparkling wine produced by Andrés winery (now Andrew Peller Limited) in Canada. Launched in 1971, Baby Duck is a light pink, fizzy wine modeled after Mateus, the popular off-dry sparkling wine from Portugal. Many refer to Baby Duck as “soda pop” wine because of its sweet, fruity and easy-drinking characteristics. Once Canada’s best-selling wine, It has garnered a reputation as a “gateway” wine, popular with young drinkers for it’s easy transition from soft drinks to something with more of a kick.– Description from Amanda Schuster

Let me just slap down anybody who might want to call be a baby killer. Go pound sand. I have heard the opinion that the Geyserville bottling is the most age-worthy of the various Ridge Zin-based bottlings. Based on this one sample, my response is "Why wait?" This is emminently drinkable--serious upfront red berry fruit notwithstanding--I can ... Read More
Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... Read More

Baby duck is such an awesome tasting wine. We first purchased it on our honeymoon to Niagara Falls Canada in October 1991. We have been able up until 2010 to purchase it in Lansdowne Ontario where our Canadian friends live and we try to visit every year. However the past 2 years I have not been able to find it and I was told that it was not l...
I posted this question because someone on another thread referred to Merlots as "tannic" and I don't think of them that way. But I also realize I am less sensitive to tannins than to, for example, acidity. I have to stop and think about whether tannins are high or medium, although I can kind of quantify them if I stop and think.I think of tann... Read More
People are not going to like what I have to say here, but that is okay, this is not a popularity contest. I do not write about wine to gather as many friends or followers as possible. I write about wine because I love wine and while I know my palate sometimes strays outside of the mainstream, so be it. I know many other people share my tastes or... Read More
