Rotad i fino känns det, som en fino på steroider. Fikon, syra, örter, kanderade nötter, gräddkola, pomerans, bakad citron, florsocker. Sött doft och supertorr smak. Oändliga doftnyanser! — 23 days ago

Wine of the night for us. Goosebumps. Extraordinary depth and presence. Vital, powerful. As these sherries age, they seem to grow in complexity without any of the effects of old age—no softening or weakness. Brillant wine tasted in the bodega cellar. A memorable experience. — 25 days ago

From my vault of opinions, Sherries over-perform for credit due. This Amontillado is considered entry but it’s definitely not basic. It sits halfway between Fino and Ollorosso in structure and since its unfortified, it’s pleasantly light.
