Remarkable mineral purity and concentration. The aroma is less interesting than before. — 21 hours ago

Vintage Port 1911

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, thin and very old looking. Notes of brown sugar, molasses, some wood. Medicinal. In the mouth it’s different than what I expected. Tastes like Port, but looks and smells like Madeira. Someone guesses Vin Santo. But based on the taste I go with old Port. — 3 days ago

Tons Douro Tinta Roriz

Delicious! It has a great earthy, cedar berry taste. Light tasting and a good aftertaste. It paired well with steaks on the grill on a cool spring night! Not heavy so I can drink it all summer! I can’t wait until we can actually drink it in Portugal again! — 7 days ago

Madeira Verdelho 1981

The fourth bottle on my 40th birthday week was this lovely surprise pour from a Somm friend at Tasting Group. While my Delectable account doesn’t reflect it, I’ve always been a sucker for Madeira and this was flat out delicious. Candied walnuts, orange fruit marmalade, creme brûlée, figs...all of the things. So richly layered and long lasting on the palate. Just lovely. — 5 days ago

20 Years Old Madeira Terrantez

@Delectablewine Delectablewine this is the terrantez. Poor terrantez—very nearly extinct on Madeira, though I hear subsidies are having some success in reviving it. For my palate it’s the golden mean—tremendous character & acidity, just enough sweetness. This is so elegant and quietly powerful. Aromas are on point and palate is beautifully structured with the pleasing rapier finish emblematic of the varietal. Lovely stuff. — 9 days ago

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Red Blend 2018

Nice wine for the price, especially with a nice chill. Great restrained fruit, slightly juicy, great mouthfeel, good acid. Nice and versatile pairing wine and relatively low abv. — 10 days ago
