Fruity and floral on the nose with a minor hop tone. Notes of green hazelnuts and evasive suggestions of red fruit add detail and deoth though this turns decidedly more autumnal with a bit of decaying logs, earth, and a suggestion of tootsie roll. A touch sweet and climsy in the mouth with a solid, dark fruit character tinged with cocoa. Solid length but lacking complexity. 87pts

Salty and seaweedy on the nose then nutty with notes of hazelnut and almond joined by a bit of animal glue. This evolves well revealing smoky, tarry,m anise tones with a touch of spearmint lingering above it all. Round and lush in the mouth with lovely integration. The mid-palate is juicy with lots of dark spice notes up front then preserved/dried orchard fruits across the mid-palate with a very nervous finish hinting gently of bay leaf. 92pts

I am not much of a wine drinker but I do know what I like. I had this wine at a dinner over 5 years ago and this wine has been on my mind since then. A smooth taste that is quenching enough for someone who doesn't like wine much.

Verdelho is a medium dry Madeira which is extremely versatile. Its tautness makes it suitable for serving with dessert but five years oak casks have also given it a soft delicate quality which may be best enjoyed when served lightly chilled.

The elegant fruit qualities of this medium-dry Madeira make it equally suitable as an aperitif or dessert wine. Ideally paired with cream-based or heavier soups such as tomato bisque, crab, and cheese. - Winery

Deep burnt amber. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Dried flowers and peaches, nuts. Tangy aromas lead into a juicy assertive palate with nutty notes through the finish. Sweetness is well integhrated.

This rich and honeyed wine, with its apple and floral nuances, is moderately sweet and round until the finish, where it turns dry and nutty. Try as an aperitif or dessert. Drink now.

Rich and elegant, with layers of delicious dried apricot, pear and butterscotch flavors. Sweet creamy notes fill the long, spicy finish. Excellent balance, structure and freshness. Drink now through 2012.

Orange, amber color. Smoky, bright nose features orange peel. Moderately rich and intensely flavored, with lively acidity. Finishes subtle and long, with a persistent fruity quality.
