Storeage; Store the bottle horizontally in a dark place with constant temperature, ideally between 12ºC and 15ºC. 

Decant; If you have a decanter, use it. If you do not, try ‘double decanting', which achieves the same effect: pour the port in to a suitable neutral receptacle, such as a jug. Take especial care towards the end of the bottle - use natural light or a candle to see when the sediment starts to be poured. Without undue wastage, stop pouring at this point. Rinse then drain the original bottle, then pour the decanted port back in to serve. The process also opens up the full depth of tastes and aromas to be enjoyed.  
 
Tasting Notes; There are intense flavors of blackberry jam, sour cherry marmalade, some overripe blackcurrant, a little bit of spicy bitterness and a hint of graphite. The acidity is well in balance with the body and the tannins seem to be getting pretty much resolved and smooth at this point. The finish is quite firm and noticeably drier than the mid-palate with long and rather savory flavors of peppery spice, graphite, some crunchy dark berries and a touch of ripe plums.

Best with; Lovely on its own or enjoy with fruit desserts, and Cheese; think Blue Cheeses such as Stilton, Smith
Woodhouse 2005 Madalena Vintage Port is also delicious on its own or when enjoyed with any type of creamy cheese, such as Camembert or Brie. Especially good with Christmas Pudding.
