Getting over hump day with some birth year wine. Your typical alfrocheiro/baga/jaen/tinta roriz and preto mortágua blend. Not much fruit left. All sandalwood and spice. Heard of this one, Portuguese wine expert @Zachary Sussman ?

This is a treat. Aged 35 years in winemakers cellar, then 4 years in ours. Still beautiful. Leather, tobacco, and some hints of soft dark fruits.

A little muted at first but opened up beautifully! Thanks to the La Taberna team!

Exceptional, earthy with just a bit of funk, some leather, smooth and delicious

I think this wine is all about the nose. Beautiful nose with leather and some pepper, but falling apart once on the palate. A cool wine for the value and vintage.
