Hi all --
Recently I was at AOC, a restaurant in Los Angeles with a great wine list, and we tried a 10 year old Madeira with our desert. I loved it (unfortunately I don't recall the winemaker) but I am now intrigued to learn about and sample more Madeiras. Interestingly, Madeira does not appear to be a popular wine selection at most shops I've been to in the LA area--so I may end up shopping over the internet.
I'm looking for recommendations as to a good starting point for a Madeira novice, and also any good suggestions as to whether you know of any good websites to shop for/learn more about Madeira. I am not in the position to spend loads of money, but would be willing to spend up to $40 or $50 if necessary.
