    January 2, 2017 - Brownish purple; the magic of oxidation (a tragedy in other wines); this is all about craziness in aroma profile; over-scorched creme brulee, brown sugar, toffee and an extra umami thing bordering on anchovy paste. The usual alcohol burn of fortification with a snappy white pepper finish. A novelty to end an evening.

    June 13, 2015 - Very fragrant and expressive bouquet that could be smelled as soon at the cork was popped. Rich and sweet, in the typical brawny style of d'Oliveira. Carmel, dates, chocolate and citrus tang. Very good length. A bit of VA was detected, which did not detract much. A lovely, powerfully rich Boal.

    January 10, 2014 - Quick taste. Quite clean and pleasant nose, complex, moderately sweet ans just slightly burned. Very spicy, very rich, complex. Interesting, but a touch agressive and lacks acidity, spice dominated. Very long peppery coffee aftertaste.

    May 14, 2013 - Amazing savoury power, and yet it's brown sugar sweet. Words won't do.

    February 15, 2013 - Pointless really to describe this in terms of other flavours. It is the essence of brown sugar, and yet so deep and multifaceted. A wonder.
