    February 4, 2016 - Madeira Pilgrimage; 2/1/2016-2/4/2016 (Madeira): God, what a cool wine. Smells of dried pineapple, sweet clove, cherry wood, menthol, eucalyptus and leather, all of the aromas of complex, nuanced and exciting. Sweet but balanced on the palate, this is wacky good. Leather, coffee, cherry wood, dusty library, herbal bitters, eucalyptus, vapor rub, these flavors are so unique and complex. The wine is seamless on the with its richness and acidity. Crazy-long finish.

    January 7, 2007 - Roy Hersh's Majestic Madeira Extravaganza (Seattle, WA): Lots of spirit on the nose. This is a rich, intense wine, again showing string spirit following by loads of caramel and spicy onion. The acidity seemed absent as compared to the relatively dominant acid in the other 16 examples of Madeira.

    January 7, 2007 - Brownish / muddy color, evenly concentrated. The nose is intense and reminds me of a barley wine. There is a lovely sweet malt component. Also present are caramel, figs, and coffee. Complex and interesting. On the palate the wine is thick, full, round, and sweet with strong yet balanced acidity. Long complex finish.
