Stunning Madeira with singed, caramel-drizzled cobbler crust; red sweet berries, pancake syrup...and utter delectableness!

A real trick. Tastes almost like a veldehro. Doesn't have the cloying sweetness some mak malmeseys have. A deep brown color. But a little harsh

Had the 1994 vintage on 5/30. Nice balance, not overly sweet, smooth and silky, with a hint of lemon and nice acidity with a slightly smoky after taste.
