Despite having more than a decade in the bottle, this is a big boi. Powerful and decadent, but in balance. No one characteristic overpowers another, and it changed and softened over time. Pencil shavings, jalapeño, rubber, and strawberry on the nose. Rich and luscious mouthfeel with great acidity and just enough tannins. A long finish with just a hint of oak influence at the very end. Drinks way above its price point.

A big one. Lots of structure and fruit. Leather smoke. Long finish. Def needs food for the acid. Tannins behaved. Opened an hour before. 100% baga. Aged 24 months in mature 4,000l oak. Heaviest bottle I’ve ever held. Around €37 retail.l in Lisbon.

Exquisite! Oaked aged, mature Portuguese tinto. Very complexed with notes of leather, meat, preserved black fruit, and spice. Wonderful gem of you come across it!

Slight rough tannins, nice acidity and lots of clay character.
