  • 1871 Cossart Gordon & Co. Madeira Bual Solera

    This wine has a beautiful, rich, amber-golden color. It is clear with no visible sediment. It has a light viscosity that coats the inside of the glass when I swirl it. On the nose, there are aromas of lime, complex layers of dried fruit (notably golden raisins), roasted nuts, and a hint of caramelized orange peel. As it opens, subtle notes of aged wood and a whiff of tobacco emerge, adding complexity and depth. There is a great balance, almost as if this wine will be tame and reserved. But the acidity and complex flavors ramp up on the mid-palate and provide wonderful notes of stewed fruits, some salted caramel, and dried apricots. There are some nice spice notes on the long, savory finish. This Madeira (being a Solera) has a rounded smoothness to it.

  • NV S. Leonardo Porto 20 Year Old Tawny

    Bottled in 2019. Light amber in color. Clear. Clean nose with caramel, vanilla, dried fruit, and very light orange spice. Extremely smooth entry with balanced acidity, orange spice, sweet toffee, and lovely dried nuts. This is such an incredibly balanced wine. Very long, sweet finish with complexity and supple tannins

  • NV Taylor (Fladgate) Porto 30 Year Old Tawny

    Amber-ruby in color with some light sediment. Mahogany, dusty library, orange spice, vanilla, and light VA on the nose. Bright acidity, rich flavor profile, and noticeable tannins. Dried nuts, candied orange peel, caramel, and burnt sugar on the palate. Nice long finish with complex waves of flavors.
