Fully mature and a fine accompaniment to my chicken, linguica, and rice dish. Nose has earthy sandstone minerality, and dark, mature red berry fruit. Nice acids help keep it lively, though the finish is a little short. Pretty good value at $18.

A 2015 Baga that’s relatively approachable? Sign me up.

Zippy dark fruit and a well balanced medium body. Highly drinkable.

Surprinsingly not as charming as the reviews I read, a bit tight and short, maybe I was not in the mood.

Cedar and nice nose, more mellow on the palate than another Baga, not as good on the palate as the smell.

Very full bodied and rich but also super smooth with a nice finish.

2012 vintage on 11.11.17
Red purple color. Red fruit, roses, tobaco and leather. Mushrooms and meat. Well balanced and structured. Long finish.

Opened up on the second day. Very nice zippy acidity. Portuguese wines really deliver for the price.

First time having Baga definitely not the last. Great balance all the way through, fantastic value.

Dark berry fruit, tobacco, and... Dry leathery goodness. Nicely balanced so not overly fruity... A great analog to a Ribera del duero Tempranillo.
