1968 D'Oliveiras Madeira Boal
Community Tasting Notes 10

December 27, 2016 - The wine has a dark caramel color. The nose is absolutely superb. It smells like toast, almond, hazelnut; clearly the most striking of flavors, caramel also comes to mind. The wine is silky and rich, and yet has a surprising acidity....it probably will last another few decades. What an achievement!1 person found this helpful Comment

October 7, 2016 - Unreal. Rich layers of sweetness accented with bright acidity and delineated exotic spice notes. Effortless palate weight & certainly more than a dessert wine. Loved every sip.

February 4, 2016 - Madeira Pilgrimage; 2/1/2016-2/4/2016 (Madeira): Aromas of orange marmalade, dried apricots, sweet caramel, clove and floral potpourri. Tart and zesty on the palate, this is a bold but sharp wine. Flavors of apricot jam, almond, coffee, spiced tea, floral perfume, and a mix of candied and salted nuts.
