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.

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

Delightful, smooth body, fruity, toasty oak, high acid/medium tannin. A great example of recent Bairrada viticulture techniques. Drink now or age a touch.
