    August 2, 2009 - New York bids adieu to Sharon Bowman (Dougherty's): Plenty of VA, but it wouldn't be Madeira without it. Burnt sugar, orange peel and nutty aromas. Pretty smooth and rich on the palate with citrusy acidity keeping things in check. Spice cake, apricot, citrus and toffeed nuts on the palate. Quite enjoyable. A-.

    December 25, 2008 - Decanted back into bottle for 24h. Muddy light brown; an intense woodiness on the nose; but the palate "shape" is lovely extending out to a very long finish; not particularly complex or evolving on the nose but the initial narrow entry followed by full-mouth engulfing richness and spiciness drifts through to the back palate for a long time.

    August 17, 2008 - Tasted at The Sampler. The oldest Madeira (or indeed single-vintage wine) I've had. Rather murky muddy yellow color, and not particularly thick. Bold burnt sugar and cream nose. Notable acidity on the attack, but then it just goes on and on, changing in the mouth in waves. The multi-layered finish reminds me of d'Yquem in its complexity.
