With its Sidonio de Sousa Reserva 2009, this Baga Friend introduces a different take on the unique baga grape. With a garnet color, the Reserva 2009 is quite juicy and vibrant on the nose, reminding port grapes. In the mouth, this smooth operator shows lively but fine tannins of great quality, softened by its 18 months of Portuguese oak. Heavily perfumed with musk and a hint of lavender and rosemary spices, this baga is a keeper for years to come.
