    January 10, 2014 - Quick taste. Tea, coffee, VA, chalk on the nose with med. intensity. Too sweet for me, lacks acidity. Moderate length.

    September 28, 2011 - App: Deep dark golden yellow
    Aroma: Complex nose of dried fruits, burned brown sugar and sherry-cress
    Very full-bodied and great concentration. Great balance.
    Very good length

    December 22, 2010 - Aromas of raisin and coffee. Taste corresponds to aromas, but adds fresh mint and nuts. Sweet, but with balancing acidity. Complex.
    By far the best of the few Madeiras I have tasted. (92 points)

    Near perfect with tiramisu and desserts made with cream and dried fruits.

    PS! This is not a wine one would drink large quantities of. We had a small glass almost every evening for more than a week. The wine kept it's qualities, and did not stop to to impress. (93 points).
