    June 13, 2016 - Pared with Spanish cheese after dinner. It has been many years since we were able to find this dessert wine. As good as we remember -- especially with a selection of cheeses.

    January 26, 2016 - Served with Spanish cheeses after dinner with Jim and Judy Voelz. It had been a number of years since we had been able to find this dessert wine. Every bit as good as we remembered.

    April 24, 2014 - Private Dinning: You Bring then I Do (Restaurant La Piperna - Madrid): Excellent, as ever.
    Completely different if compared with your usual sweet wine.
    Aromas of black olives, blueberries and candies. A saline touch?
    Palate is dense yet refreshing. Very very long.

    Excelente, como siempre.
    Completamente diferente si la comparas con tu vino dulce habitual.
    Aromas a aceitunas negras, arándanos azules y a dulces. ¿También un toque salino?
    En boca es densa aunque refrescante. Muy muy larga.
    Acompañó un tiramisú.

    March 3, 2014 - Amazing wine, thick and super ripe but not in the least hot or pruney. In fact, it has a kind of coolness to it, with blueberry flavors, minerals, and complex florality. Bit of a bite on the finish, not necessarily a bad thing. Very fragrant. Delicious.

    October 13, 2013 - Made with extremely overripe fruits, resulting in berries, chocolate, sweet spices and 16% alcohol. Sweet, sticky and tasty, balanced by nice acidity. Port-like but not fortified. Would go well with cheeses or chocolate desserts. A pretty good value at under $30 for a 500 ml bottle.
