    November 26, 2014 - Worst madeira I've ever tasted. :) That is, there were some interesting, musty orange rind and date bar kind of note on the nose, but I didn't find it a pleasant drink.

    November 23, 2014 - Drew's 40th: Smells like Madeira, kind of. Rusty lemons and apple cider. Caramel notes on finish. Interesting old bottle of Barbaresco but not very pleasurable to drink.

    April 7, 2010 - Fantastic Night of Old Barolo and More! (An excellent Vancouver restaurant): A pale rose color with a bit of orange hue. Lovely effusive nose is a good early sign. The nose has a touch of swampiness that lends complexity and is not at all unpleasant. Most of the fruit is now gone, but the wine has lovely secondary character, excellent acids - very fresh in the mouth, and a bit of cinnamon. After half an hour, the wine was starting to show a little rust/oxidation on the nose. Overall a nice surprise. Drink up in the near term.
