On the nose: Oxidative nose of Madeira. Burnt bark, citrus peel, nutty almond aromas, freshly-peeled lychee. Some confectionery smells of chocolate fudge and saltwater taffy. There’s the dusty leather aroma of an oiled and used baseball glove, and the faintest nip of spicy deli mustard.
In the mouth: The palate is gorgeously fruity to start, with ripe strawberries, raspberries, and a rich note of kirsch. This turns tart at midpalate with the accent of lemon juice, as well as a smokily-sweet note of caramelized sugar. This finishes very subtly, with more lingering medicinal cherry notes. Throughout the mouth, this turns bitter at points, again in the style of Madeira.
This has an oxidative quality throughout that is distinct but not unpleasant. I don’t really mind it much, except where it becomes slightly bitter through the finish. Overall, this is very good. There’s tons of flavor here, mostly in good balance, for a reasonable price.
