    May 2, 2014 - Had a taste from Corvain system at biga on the Banks in San Antonio. Michael the sommelier says he can do any of his wines by the glass. Amazing experience nutty aroma with thick blackberry and fig finish!

    January 10, 2014 - Quick taste. Extremely strong, overwhelming nose, complex and balanced. Nuts, spicy cake... Extremely concentrated, dense, very sweet, fresh, very tasty. Nuts, honey, plums, orange. Very-very long. Wish I could afford more :)

    August 20, 2013 - Besøk hos Pereira d'Oliveira (Funchal, Madeira): Duft: Så konsentrert, flott nese, men ikke helt åpen (?). Trenger mer luft. Nydelig, frisk, fruktkake-/rosin-/sukatduft. Appelsinskall.
    Smak: Veldig konsentrert, flott sødme/syre balanse, middels lang ettersmak.

    January 22, 2013 - Madeira @ Bistro Cacao (A Malvasia Affair) (Washington D.C.): This was a pleasant surprise, much more depth here than I remember in two previous outings with this wine. Inky dark, almost like molasses. The nose was a bit ungiving but the palate held a fireworks display of honey, tea, dried flowers and dates. Electric acidity that left my lips smacking for more. Medium finish. Excellent showing.

    March 1, 2011 - TFS: Madeira Master Class (Tria Fermentation School): smelled like a rich person's library.... old books and leather, caramel, orange peel. finish is long and continues to build before being taken over by acid. moves from caramel --> citrus in a very interesting way.
