Rare Wine Company Heritage Madeira Boston Bual Special Reserve , 90 points

N.V. Rare Wine Company Heritage Madeira Boston Bual Special Reserve

(Portugal, Madeira)

Had this with dessert at Spaiggias in Chicago.  Very Interesting Maderia.  I found this to have a dynamic feel to it and a 4th dimension.  This was doing all kinds of stuff. The color was a little light and orange.  The nose was like a light port but not the taste. A little hot and alcohol on the beginning but there was a good dose of Burnt Carmel with mandarin and tangy on the start. Then it transitioned to a burnt log and berries. Then before the finish there was some vanilla, green apple and fig.  Pretty cool that it had this transition before going to a very nice and long finish of a very high quality black licorice.  I am not a huge port or medeira fan but I thought that this was one to be savored.  Very interesting and is worth a try at 40 bones a bottle.
