Rare Wine Co. Historic Series New York Malmsey Madeira
Every public event—from the signing of the Declaration of Independence to George Washington’s Inauguration—was toasted with a glass of Madeira. For more than 150 years, no other wine rivaled it in the eyes of connoisseurs. Malmsey celebrates the rich, luscious Malmseys that affluent New Yorkers prized, from the colonial period to after the Civil War. It's Incredibly rich, with dark fruitcake flavors and dry spice that balances its sweetness. Perfect for after dinner!
WS91: Rich and spicy, with a creamy texture and plenty of buttery notes to the dried apricot and roasted pineapple flavors. Smoke and cedary accents show on the plush finish. Drink now through 2030.
WA90: The non-vintage RWC New York Malmsey has a brash, walnut and smoke-scented bouquet with an acrid tang of autumn bonfire. If it were a person, it would be a Manhattan cab driver with a short fuse. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of white pepper on the entry. It offers dried toffee, Chinese 5-spice, espresso and marmalade on the viscous finish, which is kept in check by the rapier-like acidity. This is excellent.
