90 International Wine Challenge Salted, caramel nose with caramel with floral uplift. Spanish almonds accompanied by racy acidity and clean celery finish. Tightly round and ready to explode.

88 The Wine Enthusiast Textbook amontillado aromas of butter, peanut, caramel and brine precede a fresh high-energy palate that's fueled by acidity. Nutty flavors of toffee include plenty of salt and some smoke, while this finishes long and slightly fiery. - Best Buy

*** The Washington Post Score: *** Stars (Exceptional/Great Value)
Rich and nutty, this lovely amontillado smells and tastes of smoked meat, roasted hazelnuts and wild herbs, all with a creamy texture that coats the mouth. Pair it with hearty dishes such as smoked duck. Alcohol by volume: 18 percent.
