Publication Score Comments
The Wine Advocate 90 The NV Amontillado Escuadrilla Solera Reserva which is over 15 years of age reveals some caramel notes, a touch of raisins, and an overall sweet sensation in the nose, complemented by the recurring hazelnut notes, while the palate is very dry, full-bodied, powerful and even has some tannin in the finish. Very persistent. Drink 2013-2018.
Wine Spectator 92 "Smoked almond, singed orange peel, date, salted caramel and toasted hazelnut notes all weave together here, with a flicker of sweetness through the finish as a green tea accent chimes in. Shows lovely range and elegance. Drink now. 100 cases imported." (08/2014)
Decanter Magazine 92 Silver Medal Decanter Wine World Awards 2016
Deep and spicy; showing caramel, coffee and dark chocolate aromas, before moving on to a clean, lingering palate that hosts almonds, leather, dried citrus peel, refreshing acidity and wonderfully uplifting fruit.
