Quinta Das Bageiras Garrafeira 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

100% Baga, indigenous yeast, fermented for 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 75 year old plus vines Tight and youthful on the nose with just a hint of wild cherry fruit layered under aromas of tar, tree bark, green medicinal herbs, green peppercorn, and almost dried green chile. Fairly spicy, chalky, bright and rich on the palate, with immediate obvious bright acids and tannins that are both sweet and yet astringent. There is huge depth of fruit here, savory, beet root, rhubarb and juniper spiced with candied blackberry fruit and beautiful wild cherry fruit layered underneath all wrapped up in firm minerality. With a lovely stemmy note this turns finely aromatic on the long finish revealing a red currant note with hints of Dr. Pepper soda. 92pts
