Quinta de Foz de Arouce 2005 Vinhas Velhas de Santa Maria Baga (Beiras)

The local Baga grape is notoriously difficult to tame, so it's impressive how smooth this wine is. Yes, the Baga acidity is there, as well as just fleeting glimpses of awkward tannins, but the main effect is a wine that balances austerity with a solid, juicy texture, showing red fruits over the dry, tight core. 2–3 years aging would help.
