Justino Henriques Malmsey 1933

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and minty on the nose with the small of old parchment bound books. This really gains clarity as it turns bright and precise on the nose with a touch of blackberry jam that plays off darker coffee tones. Lean and bright in the mouth with a fresh fruit profile but lacking a bit of flesh ont he finish. Good length, decent length. 91pts

If you really want to know the full potential of Madeira wines, this is the place to start. The 5 and 10-year old wines are nice, but I don't think they quite fully portray the power and finesse that Madeira has....certainly not like this. Deep reddish brown with a tan rim. On the nose a lot of toffee and spice with some allspice and caramel notes coming through. On the palatte - raisins and prunes and some nuttiness and more toffee. The finish goes on for minutes. It reminds me a lot of Colheita (vintage tawny) ports that are 40 years old or older, but this (being a Madeira) is still distinctly different. I paid a bit under $200 for my bottle and I think it's a good buy at that price point. --A
