João do you do?

[cave]Caves São João 2003 “Frei João” Bairrada (Portugal) – Dark, hard, difficult. There’s plum here, perhaps a bit fire-roasted, and squinched blackberry, and perhaps some dirt. Black dirt. I’d like to try this from a different vintage. (6/08)

From Bairrada, heh?

Ever tried the "Baga" grape?

I believe you wouldn't dislike a "Casa de Saima Garrafeira" (just as an example)...

Yes, I have tried wines made from baga.

I'll keep an eye out for that wine. Thanks.
