    October 29, 2014 - 2012 Napa Cabs ("reasonably priced"), 68 Madeira (Our Home): This was allowed to air for about an hour. It needs more time. The nose has orange slices, chocolate orange candy, slight raisins and a bit of toffee. Gorgeous. On the palate, this is very smooth. Citrus and chocolate. Nice acidity. Slightly sweet. Long finish. A great "young" Madeira.

    September 27, 2014 - Similar notes to previous bottle. Drank over a couple of months and great throughout.

    September 26, 2014 - Bottled this year. A lighter color than I was expecting, but then I don't have much experience with these. Nose of creme brulee, butterscotch/salted caramel, orange peel, commanding on the palate with a long mouthwatering finish. Longgg life ahead.

    July 18, 2014 - By the glass at Pizzeria Mozza, Newport Beach. Delicious with the fresh peaches and gelato pie. Wonderful nose, very bright flavor, somewhat acidic and tangy citrus.
