SKU #1036124 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark In a recent series of entry-level Madeiras, this was a standout, offering excellent complexity and richness at a reasonable price. Nuts, toffee and dried fruit aromas and flavors swirl together, balancing moderate sweetness with harmonious acids. Long on the finish. *Editor's Choice* (JC) Inner quote mark (11/2006)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lively and rich, with a hazelnut nose and apricot, pear and almond flavors. Long, spice- and mineral-filled finish. Quite fresh-tasting. (KM, Web Only- 2008) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Sercial is the driest style of Madeira; this one was aged in the traditional "Canteiro" system using American oak casks. Because this Madeira is fined, it doesn't require decanting. Fresh, dry fruit flavors tending toward citrus and highlighted by wood spice. It has a nutty, lingering finish. Perfect as an aperitif, this will also pair well with appetizers and, surprisingly, Indian cuisine!
