    January 30, 2012 - A wine once belonging to the Favilla Vieira family; guessed to be about 40-50 years old. Popped and poured. A wine that made me smile from the first whiff. Tart, citric and focused. Dried peaches, lemons, and nut skin; hints of burnt sugar. Tangy, savory and mouthwatering; excellent length. Not heavily torrefacted, but light, fresh and zippy with a haunting cling... wonderful Madeira with fabulous laser-like focus. I can't wait to follow this over the next few days.
