Pauillac 5th Growth Classification
This is well defined on the nose, fresh, smoke, blackberry, pain grille, very good lift. Touch of liquorice. The palate is full-bodied, sinewy, firm tannins, black fruits liquorice, a touch of white pepper, very elegant on the mid-palate, powerful at first pour and then ebbs away as if it has suddenly remembered its year of birth. But it has fine tannins and certainly a commendable wine for the vintage. The finish is simple, a little short, but with some attractive tarry notes on the aftertaste.

"Aromas of raisin and coffee. Taste corresponds to aromas, but adds fresh mint and nuts. Sweet, but with balancing acidity. Complex.
By far the best of the few Madeiras I have tasted. (92 points)
Near perfect with tiramisu and desserts made with cream and dried fruits.

Margaux, 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 93-95 Points - Wine Journal ***
"A sensational bottle that simply defied every rule about Bordeaux. Intense liquorish, cherry liqueur nose: very rich. Thick exotic, rounded palate with super-ripe Merlot. Reminds me of a Petrus! Very complex with spicy, fleshy finish. This bottle is high-toned, succulent and quite delicious. Beyond my wildest expectations. " Neil Martin, Wine Journal 2004

Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port
The 1984 still has some youth evident on the colour. A delightful, fruit-laden nose, which takes considerable time in the glass to open up. Macerated black fruits and figs, covered in a thin layer of chocolate. Rich, full bodied, but quite forward and fruit dominated on the palate. A lovely texture, quite creamy and sweet, to match this fruit. Some powerful tannins in the background, although these really do play a minor role, only showing on the finish.
