    May 7, 2016 - 116y old... no way... was fruity, the right level of sweetness, vibrant, complex. A wonderfully happy wine. An exceptional bottle.

    June 22, 2013 - Dark brown colour but very good clarity. I don't have much experience with these types of wines, but I was struck by its intensity. It's got another 100 years to go without hesitation. I liked it very much.

    January 7, 2007 - Roy Hersh's Majestic Madeira Extravaganza (Seattle, WA): Caramel colored with a bright rim. Notes of hoisin sauce at first, but then this became more piquant. Some flavors of plum sauce on the palate. Wow, this is a very dynamic wine, shockingly complex and then there is a huge burst of acidity. It seems to need more time to mesh, and I ranked it behind the 1850 and 1912 to follow. Pretty remarkable wine though.
