Quinta da Vacarica Bairrada 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Old and young vines of Baga, two and a half hectares, fermented in open lagar with no destemming five to eight days in lagar, then drained into tank where fermentation continues for an additional ten to fifteen days before the wine is aged for 14 to 16 months in 2000 to 4000 liter casks Tight and a bit dull on the nose with aromas of dates, coffee, old wood, and a bit of a foxy cast to the fruit. Soft on entry and a bit low acid, this shows rather grapy and foxy black fruit early on the palate, which is a bit simple if nicely polished. Chunky and inelegant today, this carries quite a load of fruit tannins though it is lacking in detail and depth at the moment and finishes short with a slightly medicinal quality. Quite a different wine than the 2008, or iis it just the additional year in the bottle. 84pts
