Drinking beautifully with a little bottle age. Just starting to show shades of garnet and wet earth, mushroom notes. Ripe cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, red plum characteristics remain present next to violet, anise, licorice, nutmeg, vanilla, and cardamom. — 8 months ago
N: Salty dried butterscotch/caramel, Seashore, old boats, rot in the best of ways.
P: Sweet but no… upon entry, the impression is of something unctuous and sweet, for a bit of a second, then DRY. Yellow and gold flowers/melon,
heady at 16°. Great w baby artichokes and Parm and pan seared Branzino.
Really fine weirdo stuff. I’ve never splurged for the Quattro Palmas…but….
fine weirdo stuff.. — 5 months ago
Not familiar with this producer. Really pleasant red blend. Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Sangiovese (10%). New World in style. The plushness of the Merlot really shows through but the density of the Cabernet and the acidity of the Sangiovese keeps the wine extremely well balanced. Deep ruby color. Aromas and flavors of sweet red and black fruit are complimented by pleasant notes of vanilla, baking spices, tobacco and just a hint of green pepper. Finish is full but just a little short. Otherwise, everything else comes together well. Nice compliment to our take out pasta. — 2 years ago

2023/9. Classic amontillado, with plenty of flor character and oxidative richness — 2 months ago
Like Valdespino’s Fino Inocente and Amontillado Tio Diego, it is sourced from the Macharnudo Alto vineyard, the highest point and probably the most famous vineyard in the Marco de Jerez and made with with specific casks from these Fino and Amontillado rerouted to oxidative aging. Aged for an average of 25 years in the solera system. Beautiful aromas of caramel, orange rind, and iodine. Sharp, precise, quite saline, with flavors of hazelnuts. Very very long finish with lingering hazelnuts — 3 years ago
