    March 15, 2017 - Madeira in Madeira; 3/15/2017-3/20/2017: Mild, moderate and (as others have remarked) almondy, this is not quite as bland as white port, but still far from the edgy glories that Sercial can display. 85P

    January 13, 2017 - Dark lemon to gold in color, fresh and lively, offering aromas of lightly toasted almonds, maple, baked apple, seaspray and minerals. Medium-dry, bright, and juicy in texture, with intense and notably complex lemon curd and nut flavors.

    November 21, 2016 - Dry Madeira is not my favourite type of Madeira. I prefer Bual. But I really liked this wine. Relatively affordable: $21.50 plus shipping. But I probably won't buy it again for a while.

    February 3, 2016 - Madeira Pilgrimage; 2/1/2016-2/4/2016 (Madeira): I knew this was a versatile wine, but, wow, it's so good as a first-course wine. Tasted with octopus carpaccio wih Caesar salad and the pairing was popping.

    Nut and dried fruit. Loved the acidity. Super value.
