A single vineyard or “ Pago “ 9K from the Atlantic, In Sanlucar de Barrameda. Andalucia, Spain. Palomino Fino grown there since the 1800’s at least.
4 years under flor.
N: Very oxidative w the sea, vanilla in the background.
P: The creamiest semi salty 15° dream of the sea.,so easy going down, all the rough edges worn off. Slight kick of wood and vanilla. But old, not a kick in the face.
At15°, a wee bit dangerous in it’s innocence.
Come back after a day in the fridge, it’s got a heady/heavy marzipan nose that hits your palate bone dry. A wonderful juxtaposition of worlds. Still has that briny finish so nice in Manzanilla and long.￼

Soft but with character, like a good Red Bank wine should be. Lots of cranberry sauce, blueberry cobbler, and clay aromas with hints of cigar box coming through. Tasty, easy to drink for a Bordeaux, but not as earthy as I'd expect. That said, very solid wine for the price and a good way to trick anti-Merlot Sideways snobs into trying something they claim not to like. — 5 months ago
Surprised by its sweetness, but it’s otherwise totally balanced—equally juicy with enough depth and tannins to hold up to a lot of the bigger reds — a month ago
Single vineyard,Marchanudo, aged statically 6 years under flor.
N:Peaches! yeasty bread, Oranges, a whiff of the sea.
P: So smooth, Oranges and almonds. Caramel. Great acid balance. Nice chalk underlying it.
