1965 Baga from Barraida (Agueda), Casal Mor 'Caves Primavera' is still made to this day! Founded in 1944.

So, now the wine!

Color of tawny and brick, absolutely as expected at this age. The cork was whole when pulled via Durand, a little wet and very dark.

The nose was sous bois, crushed fall leaves, dried chipped beef, citrus peel, dried flowers and red fruits.

The palate was elegant and indeed tasted Portuguese, with some notes and textures that reminded me of old Barbaresco, Rioja and even Burgundy in its purity and finnesse.

Further time won't help this wine, but to taste this history, this snapshot of time, is one of the reasons I love wine so much.

Obrigado!
