    July 15, 2017 - What a beautiful Madeira and it is still so young. I hope to taste this again in 20-30 years...Impeccable balance and terrific complexity. To be enjoyed on its own or perhaps a savory short bread

    March 20, 2017 - Second day since opening with about 1/4 of the bottle left. Continuation of earlier note
    The same symphony, the same beauty. This is a must buy more wine. 95 once again

    March 19, 2017 - Among the best Madeira's if not the best we have tried.
    Well round, smooth, welcoming and even with no decanting this offered a beautiful experience and a great way t finish our dinner. oxidative, nutty, mocca, caramel, dates and generally ripe fruits, firm acidity and an effortless balance. Solid. 95

    February 24, 2017 - Complex mix of sweet, sour, and nutty. Nose of varnish, nuts, red fruit jam, and toffee. Rather strong tannins on the finish for a 49 year old wine. Lots of power here.

    February 18, 2017 - My 40th Birthday Weekend; 2/17/2017-2/20/2017: Caramel, honeysuckle, toasted almond, dried lemon peel with a beautiful sweet palate. This was gorgeous.
