    January 7, 2007 - Roy Hersh's Majestic Madeira Extravaganza (Seattle, WA): Deep caramel brown, clearly the darkest wine of the flight. Almost molasses in color. Very intense nose. Some alcohol and then mmm, some toffee coming out along with gingerbread. Wowza!!! A molasses texture is followed by an explosion of acid, unreal contrast between the core of the palate and the finish. Speaking of the finish, it was mindblowing. Caramel, nuts and then the acidity. This was my second favorite of the Verdelho, but many picked it as their favorite. It was clearly the richest example of the flight.
