"The 2016 Lagar de Baixo is a Baga aged for 20 months in old 2,000-liter fuders. It comes in at 12 alcohol. One of the better red values in Niepoort's lineup, this has all you wantstructure, reasonable concentration for the grape and region, freshness and a long finish. Rather tight on that finish, this is still approachable, showing beautiful fruit and a lively demeanor. I'm not sure this is as good as the 2015, but it is still very fine. Let's see it acquire some complexity in timeit should age well. This was only in bottle about two weeks when seen, so it may yet improve. This is, of course, now a Niepoort property. Dirk Niepoort bought this property in 2012, starting afresh with no inventory and his own ideas. He was hardly a neophyte in Baga and Bairrada, of course, having made wine in the region in the 1990s and later consulting as well."
