From the Critics:
"This may be the best release of Tres Bagos yet, a blend from a group of independent quintas that joined forces in 1999 and share a technical team led by Paolo Ruao. What's impressive about it is the textural integrity, the integration of succulent plum flavors and a landslide of schist tannins mellowed through oak aging. It contrasts fresh floral scents of violets, rose and esteva with mature hints of leather, adding to the overall sense of richness. For partridge or other roast game." (04/12) - 92PtsWine & Spirits
"The 2007 TINTO 'TRES BAGOS' is a blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, and is quite lovely. Elegant and graceful, with the mid-palate fruit wrapping around the moderate tannins, this crisp and sunny wine seems very classy, if a little reticent and restrained. It is a very nice value point in this lineup that should age well and develop a little complexity, too. Drink now-2019."
"This very fine co-op stands on its own merits and usually delivers excellent performances at good price points. Their '07s were quite impressive, of comparable quality overall, which makes it hard to choose." (12/10) - 89PtsMark Squires - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
