Palomino Fino

Fino Seco Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

What I expect of a Fino. Sherry can be downright refreshing. The yellow apple/hay/bread notes on it all mingle gracefully. The texture is silky satin and there is a certain underlying floral nature that keeps all the other flavors from being stale. It’s like unsweet nectar in a springtime garden. If you could combine a back-to-school vibe with a spring break feeling that’s what I’m picking up here. — 6 days ago

Viejo C.P. Macharnudo Vineyard Palo Cortado Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

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 — 16 days ago

Deluxe Dry Sherry Fino Palomino Fino

Enjoying! Feel like it has some oxidation. Odd because it is Fino. Fino shouldn’t be oxidative hmmm. But quite tasty. Nutty salty freshly baked white bread and natural honey. You could take it anywhere and no one will pull you aside to tell you they are worried about you hanging out with it going down the wrong path etc — 8 days ago

Almacenista Manuel Cuevas Jurado Manzanilla Pasada de Sanlucar Jerez-Xérès-Sherry 1896

Despite it’s relative delicacy, a coastal old boat varnish appears on the nose. Hints at caramel( dry), and maybe ripe plantains.
Light on the palate, dry, with a honeyed finish. A nice package, a bit short on the finish.

Almacenista Pata de Gallina Oloroso Palomino Fino

2021/4. Intensely and rich, with lot of raisins, brandied fruit, and walnuts - but also a wonderful balancing acidity to keep things bright. Just a hint of rancio on the finish. — 10 days ago

Rey Fernando de Castilla

Antique Oloroso Sherry

Genius sherry to pour for your wine friends who “don’t get” sherry. Huge aromatics. Salty, butter popcorn, creme brûlée. Citrus pith, nutty. Palate is dry and expansive, complex and balanced with searing acidity. Brilliant. — 4 days ago
