Tasting Note                         

93   Rare Wine Company Madeira Malmsey  3/4/08 ($45)

92   Rare Wine Company Madeira Bual         3/4/08 ($45)

Both of these Madeiras are outstanding, showing comparable complexity and excellent body with the elegance that separates fine Madeira from tawny Port or Sherry. The Malmsey is a little richer and of course sweeter than the Bual, but is balanced by good acidity and tang.
