A hearty sausage and mash led, English dinner with siblings at atmospheric aged wine bar near London bridge included a Magnum of Champagne served in tiny chilled silver tankards and failed attempts to order 1980s Cos d'Estournel (the fine and rate wine list hasn't been updated for years and none of the interesting wines were on the cellar).
Dinner concluded with this modern styled Madeira. Caramel, walnuts and raisins. Very accessible. Very delicious. Not a patch on the more distinguished, older Madeiras but a good entry level option and a fun way to end the evening. — a month ago
Really enjoyed this. Well balanced yet complex and easy to drink on it’s own. — 18 days ago

Rich mouthfeel of ripe bing cherry and a hint of star anise. Bold Pinot just like I like it. — 13 days ago
This is another typical fruity, rich and bold Napa Cabernet. Showing black fruits with light earth notes and chocolates. Well balanced with nice complexity.
Still young and needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature properly.
Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins.
Good by itself or with food. Needs an hour to open up properly and show the tannins.
15.1% alcohol by volume.
