    June 26, 2015 - Bottling date not specified but clearly very recent. Beautiful medium orange gold shot with amber (like an old Sauternes or Tokaji); discreet nose, fresh style, subtle note of candied fruit, light caramel, sea breeze and a floral top note; the medium-dry palate displays admirable concentration and power, peach, mouthwatering acidity and quite austere, salty concentration; very dry finish with lemon fruit. Impressive. Not everybody's cup of tea but I like it a lot.

    February 27, 2015 - I am not that familiar with Madeira, so this note needs to be considered in that context. I am not one for listing extensive, specific flavors, although noting this, this wine was flavorful. A bit sweet, but not very much so. You could drink this as an aperitif or a dessert wine. I tried it both ways and preferred the dessert wine mode. Keep in mind the extra alcohol -- 20% -- this can leave you a little under the weather on the next day. I have another. No rush to drink it, although I don't think it will improve very much.

    December 25, 2011 - Clear amber colour. Strong nose of orange and its zest, plums and figs. Nearly dry taste, high in alcohol and powerful, very good pre dinner wine

    July 20, 2011 - On the nose some orange peel and slight mineral,rancio notes.Very nice semi-dry palate,smooth and balanced,showing vibrant bitter orange and rather subtle mineral and rancio flavors.Good balancing acidity.Incredibly smooth,almost silky aftertaste for a madeira.Hedonistic stuff.
