Very unique wine. Similar characteristics to Nebbiolo. Beautiful color from the age reflecting a very earthy earthy full-bodied wine. The initial nose also has tar, wet soil and cassis. Needs half a day (at least) to open up. The flavor has cherry, raspberry, tobacco and beef-like flavor. Great smoky finish. Very different for me

Dark, dark ruby with a slightly orangish rim. Minimal to no bricking. Cedar, forest, chocolate mousse, and tart cherry on the nose. A 23 year old Baga hitting it’s peak right now? Sign me up chief. This actually is slightly reminiscent of Nebbiolo with the structure and leathery influences on the palate. Smooth tannins along with high acidity compliment the full body. On the palate there’s enough fruit left, though it is subtle at this point. Notes of dry leather, coffee, wildflowers, and tons of earthy funk. Super interesting wine that’s in a beautiful place right now.

Little muted. Nice age and resolved tannins.

On 12/28/17 with tonya and dani after eating at Knox Mason. We found a 1995 bottle at the wine bar in the old city. A smooth auburn colored with an aroma of dried cherries and fall leaves. Flavor of dried fruit, smooth oak, earth are balanced in a dry but soft tannin. Very nice find,different than most other wines. You can really tell the age.
