One type of fortified wine that has fallen off the radar is Madeira. Al and Hugh tell us more about the wine and give their picks. 

The Wines

Blandy's 5 year Sercial Dry Madeira  ***  $$

Soft, dry, with a slight streak of sweetness balanced by citric acidity

The Rare Wine Co. "Historic Madeira Series" Boston Bual Special Reserve ***1/2 $$$

Rich, remarkably complex, medium sweetness, long finish

Broadbent Rainwater Madeira **1/2  $

VALUE wine, lightest of the Madeiras, still soft, gentle and rewarding

Broadbent 5 year Reserve Madeira  ***  $$

Sweet, deep and ultra smooth, a true VALUE in Madeira
