Today's Wine Tasting Note

© Copyright 1999 by Robin Garr. All rights reserved.

Henriques & Henriques Henriques & Henriques non-vintage Bual 10 Years Madeira ($32.99)
Clear, dark copper-amber. Rich aromas of "stone" fruit, plums and prunes, citrus and odd but appealing earthy nuances, truffles and wild mushrooms and the leafy, not-quite-dank character that wine tasters call "forest floor." Sweet and tart, full and strong, piercing acidity making a sturdy structure for warm stewed-fruit flavors with earthy notes. U.S. importer: Europvin USA, Emeryville, Calif. (June 13, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: After-dinner sipping.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
