The brownish-gold wine smells delightful, all raisiny and lemony and full of brown sugar. The hearty palate shows the citrus beautifully and the acidity absolutely rips. Pair with any kind of after-dinner eats, from chocolate to fruit to a cheese plate.

I haven’t been surprised in a while, till a few thimblefuls of this. So light on the tongue, so fresh, yet deep & profoundly lip smacking. A dry Madeira w all kinds of brown & savory flavors. Was after a meal of roasted chicken & carrots but can imagine any food combination. Rare Wine Co.importer — a month ago
Color is quite dark with different shades of purple. Nose of dark fruits like cherry, vanilla, oak, prunes, a bit wet mushroom, more vanilla, and some more dark fruits. Taste is quite silky, a bit sweet hickory note, mouthful, vanilla note, smooth and no edge with a bit zesty note. Aftertaste with addition of some acidity, a bit peppery, low tannins and easy to drink. Surely has backbone of Syrah in her. — 12 days ago
What you’d expect and then a little more. Delightful and rich. — 5 days ago
Drank 1/20/20. Nice with crab cakes.
Pours very dark in the glass, like an aged Sauternes. Nose of white peach and apple, with slight caramel notes. Peach and green apple on the palate, with hints of white pepper, backed by bright acidity and mild tannins. A very interesting white, that has not soured with age.

Some bottle stink and a little dull due to extended time in bottle. But otherwise love the depth and complexity. Madeira like. If the nose cleaned up this would warrant a higher score. I bet a more recently bottled example would be stunning. Bottled in 1986. — 10 days ago
