7. Luis Pato Bairrada Vinha Pan (2010)

« Prev Next » 7 of 12
Previously available for $38.00
Second picking of 100% baga, 30 year old vines in clay soils matured in new oak for 30 months Floral on the nose with a rose petal and eucalyptus overlay to the red fruit and very finely integrated oak which shows as just a little nutmeg and toast. Soft and a little broad on the palate yet with excellent acidity, there's lots of depth to the fruit here and while this is almost weighty it’s not chewy at all. Deep black cherry and earth flavors with a great mineral base note fills the mouth supported by plenty of ripe tannins. A touch of menthol along with a hint of heat shows up on the beet root tinged finish, which is cut just a touch short as the tannins close in. The fruit continues to fight with those tannins though and shows fine persistence and power. 91pts
