Learning the history of palo cortado straight from the mouth of master Antonio Flores. All heart this one, an accordion fold of intoxicatingly savory beauty.

Gripping power, smooth finish. Half the price of a 20 year tawny port, and twice as delicious.

I always have a bottle of Sherry in my fridge - vastly under appreciated as a category. It’s prime for my favorite activity - pre-dinner snacking. A good persistent Oloroso alongside toasted hazelnuts (yes must be toasted) and aged Gouda with the crystallized protein crunchies is ethereal.

This is a very good Palo Cortado, like a blurred Amontillado and Oloroso - deep and layered. Crystallized amber. Syrupy caramels, toffee, dried orange, soy, mushroom, and bitter walnuts.

(16.5/20) В аромате много изюма, фиников, грецких орехов и сливочной карамели. Свежая кислотность и продолжительное послевкусие.

Complex and refined. Absolutely perfect with the clams and Spanish sausage!

Just finished the last of this bottle. Used it to deglaze the skillet while the duck was resting.
