Rare Madeira New York Malmsey

Member Review by Rodolphe Boulanger:

If you love Madeira and live in New York, don't buy this wine in state! I was visiting Boston and found this in a wine shop for a song. Its sister, the Boston Bual, had a $10 homer price premium. Anyway, I've sung the praises of the Rare Wine Company's Historic Series elsewhere, but their New York Malmsey, the sweetest style of Madeira, is truly spectacular. A medium brown colored wine with a green tinted rim, this old beauty is full of delicious walnut, toffee, raisin and date flavors. Super complex, powerful and certainly sweet, the incredible acidity keeps this wine in balance and the finish is actually quite dry. Now we have some idea why Thomas Jefferson spent so much time writing about Madeira.
