NV El Maestro Sierra Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Amontillado 1830

Palomino Fino more

5/24/2015 - VinoSean Likes this wine: 96 points

Complex nose of hazelnuts, caramel, blood orange, tobacco leaf, and toast. Ethereal on the palate. So much going on, but with the addition of saline and near weightlessness. The finish goes on 60 seconds+. An amazing wine and my top sherry experience to date.
