    January 11, 2017 - Deep Amber
    Sweet hazelnut nose
    Rich caramel, just mildly tart, really quite lovely and absolutely worth a visit

    December 13, 2015 - Madeira and Champagne (Chicago, IL): Bottled 2014. Initial impression: there's a profound honeyed aspect to the nose on this wine -- I get a lot of sweet florals. The palate is quite spicy, and showing tart oranges, caramel, and a bit of Christmas spice. The acidity here is very powerful, and it feels almost as if this is a smidgen too dry. But then you realize that there's all this complex material, and everything's good again.

    January 10, 2014 - Quick taste. Smoked, restrained, medium dry, fresh. Coffee, just a touch of spice, then citrus. Not too complex, but not bad at all.

    August 20, 2013 - Besøk hos Pereira d'Oliveira (Funchal, Madeira): Duft: Sitrus, appelsinskall, tørket frukt.
    Smak: Wow! For en munnfølelse! Fyller hver en krok. Syrlighet og frukt, laaang ettersmak med et syrlig og bittert bitt mot slutten av smakskurven. Nydelig! Balansert! Og krevende, he, he…

    January 3, 2013 - Nougat, praline, citrus zest and nuts. Dry and racey on the palate, cutting through anything in its path. A bit of VA which is a bit on the high side but not enough to overly detract. Still a delicious and contemplative wine.
