    March 15, 2017 - Madeira in Madeira; 3/15/2017-3/20/2017: Tasted at D'Oliveiras, Funchal. Bottled in 2012. As with the 1977, quite some cellar mould on the nose, alleviated in this case by open toffee aromatics and a charming hint of lime zest. Broad, melting entry with an odd, almost medicinal character. The mid-palate is acidic/caramel-dominated. 30-second finish. Sweeter and more concentrated than the 1988, as you'd expect, but lacking its resonance and vibrancy. 90P

    February 4, 2016 - Madeira Pilgrimage; 2/1/2016-2/4/2016 (Madeira): Rocking aromas here: yellow apples, dried apricots, peach nectar, Cognac, salted almond and sea spray. Tart and bright on the palate, so tangy yet chewy, with rich orange peel and apricot. I also get cigar smoke, clover and wildflowers. A beautiful wine.

    March 7, 2015 - Tangy salinity and dried orange peel, the acidity suppresses most of the sweetness. A real treat.
