    October 7, 2016 - Unreal. Rich layers of sweetness accented with bright acidity and delineated exotic spice notes. Effortless palate weight & certainly more than a dessert wine. Loved every sip.

    February 4, 2016 - Madeira Pilgrimage; 2/1/2016-2/4/2016 (Madeira): Aromas of orange marmalade, dried apricots, sweet caramel, clove and floral potpourri. Tart and zesty on the palate, this is a bold but sharp wine. Flavors of apricot jam, almond, coffee, spiced tea, floral perfume, and a mix of candied and salted nuts.

    October 13, 2015 - Madeira Wine Institute Tasting (Washington, DC): Dark caramel color. Lovely aromas of dried fruit trail mix, caramel, sweet tea, clove, aloe, all sorts of sweet spice notes. Rich and so silky yet stays forward and fresh, which is quite a thing. I pick up on flavors of apricot jam, dried pineapple, floral perfume, spiced apple cider and a really interesting salty note. Long, smooth, pure and persistent. Enjoy now or bury for your children or grandchildren to enjoy.
