4 years of biological aging filled by another four years of aging after the yeast kill. Hazelnut. Great pairing for game.

Clear medium amber; medium intensity aldehydic aromas of dried orange peel, candied fruit, cloves, yeasty dough, caramel, hazelnut, tobacco, cedar, toast; dry, medium acid, medium alcohol, medium body, medium intensity flavors of butterscotch, caramel, cedar, tobacco, toast, spiced orange peel, medium plus finish; very good due to complex layering of flavors

One of the tastiest combos around -- Amontillado #sherry and cashews. Either alone is not as good as the mix of both. Great wine but watch the temp...no good cold.

Good structure, basenotes. Lacking finesse.

Brown sugar, flamed orange peel, and hazelnut nose. Toasted nuts and honey on the palate,, with an invigorating saline finish. Dry as advertised, but the richness of the flavors adds a touch of perceived sweetness. Yum.

Tried four different amontillados and this is my favorite so far. Very dry and nutty.
