Been opened 2 years. Still fresh acid and strong fruit coffee, roasted walnuts. Damn.

Resembles dark rum in the glass. Chocolate / cocoa flavors abound. Creamy.

Mixed nuts: hazelnut, pecan, walnut, with Vanilla, herbal notes, whip cream, fig newton, prune and raisin on the nose.
Huge pecans on the palate with candied orange peel and just overdone caramel sauce. Awesome end to dinner.

Not sure how I missed Madeira my entire life but love this type of #wine - bonus: it's fortified so it can be open for a while
