Madeira is my mistress.
The worst wine label ever? The exterior may recall “Precious Moments” or a Hummel figurine, and indeed the contents are as pretty and bright as your grandma’s lace doily. Notes of almonds and pear, with no real finish. Good weeknight quaffer with a variety of cuisine. — 8 days ago
The pinnacle of Mourvèdre for us. Taking into account that it’s certifiable infanticide to drink a Pradeaux < 10 years of age, a decant will calm the animal spirits, and besides, there are pleasures to youth, hardly wasted.
