    December 31, 2016 - Rich and deep espresso, dark chocolate, soil, walnut and pecan, orange and apricot, with nicely balanced acidity for a verdelho. Very nice

    November 12, 2015 - Similar profile to prior bottles albeit with a darker character and more melded backpalate flavors. Bottle consumed over the course of 1.5 weeks. 94-95

    October 11, 2015 - Nose of bitter orange, fig pudding, dried ginger, brown sugar, bitters, and sweet balsamic. Palate with bitter orange, dried orange rind, and pecan, with pecan and hazelnut notes lingering with bitter citrus on the finish.

    October 3, 2015 - Iberian Wine Dinner (Milford, CT): Very much a d'Oliveira wine... big, muscular and concentrated. Loaded with honey, citrus, burnt sugar and dried yellow fruits. The finish is intense, pungent, lip-pursing and full of bite. On the drier side, but not lacking in richness. The finish on this wine just knocked me out. A bit of VA, but not off-putting... just a whiff to add complexity. More of a wine to have by itself rather than with food, as this really has a lot going on.

    October 3, 2015 - Iberian dinner (Milford, CT): Comes across quite sweet after the Sercial, with rich honeyed, toffee, and molasses flavours framing an array of dried fruits, roasted nuts, and citrus peel. Full bodied on the palate with a very glossy, slightly oily texture, and plenty of sweetness that's very well balanced by the bright acidity here.
