Amontillado was long my favorite Sherry style. Palo Cortado is where it's at for me these days. One of the best here and truly sings after a week. Polished off remains with salt roasted almonds, elixir of Zibibbo from Pantellaria and Fiore Sicano cheese.

Off nose and palate. Not an elegant wine. Normally I love Palo Cortado but this is not interesting.

Love valdespino, and this has got to be one of my favorite bottling from them. vibrant yet walnuts, bitter chocolate and coffee also show through. Lean and smooth, absolutely fantastic!

Almost literally timeless. Richly flavored, not too heavy, beautifully integrated. Almonds, chewiness, a bit of breakfast (coffee and orange). Superb.
