    April 24, 2017 - N.V. Justino's Madeira Verdelho 10 Years Old; 19.5 pabv. Importer: Broadbent Selections; bottling date unknown. Medium-deep reddish brown with plenty of tears. Vivid high-toned smoky pungent sweet neutral honied scents wth a hint of ethyl acetate; attractive lacquer notes also. Round and energetic entry with redwood flavor; medium finish with typical sweet-dry balance of this variety. Not a bad idea to decant or allow to sit in glass for an hour or two. A strong showing after several weeks on the counter top; on opening this was coarser and showed some heat but that's all resolved. Some CellarTracker users have filed this under the producer name 'Justino Henriques, which is nowhere found on this bottle that I can see.

    June 24, 2016 - Color ámbar oscuro. Nariz voluminosa, con notas de corteza de naranja, frutos secos (sobre todo nueces) y un fondo de melaza. En boca tiene buen ataque, dulzor medio, untuoso, con sensación de materia, cierto frescor, amargos medios y bastante longitud.

    June 26, 2015 - Bottling date not specified but clearly very recent. Beautiful medium orange gold shot with amber (like an old Sauternes or Tokaji); discreet nose, fresh style, subtle note of candied fruit, light caramel, sea breeze and a floral top note; the medium-dry palate displays admirable concentration and power, peach, mouthwatering acidity and quite austere, salty concentration; very dry finish with lemon fruit. Impressive. Not everybody's cup of tea but I like it a lot.

    February 27, 2015 - I am not that familiar with Madeira, so this note needs to be considered in that context. I am not one for listing extensive, specific flavors, although noting this, this wine was flavorful. A bit sweet, but not very much so. You could drink this as an aperitif or a dessert wine. I tried it both ways and preferred the dessert wine mode. Keep in mind the extra alcohol -- 20% -- this can leave you a little under the weather on the next day. I have another. No rush to drink it, although I don't think it will improve very much.
