Wine Spectator 91 "Offers a raisiny hint, along with notes of date, anise, fennel seed, cardamom and singed clove. There's an ever so slightly sweet feel through the nicely wiry finish, tinged with orange bitters. Drink now. 200 cases made."
Wine Enthusiast 92 "Just add this oloroso to the growing list of excellent Sherries from Lustau. This one is tellingly nutty on the nose, thus the hazelnut and walnut flavors are expected as they become part of a bigger painting that includes coffee, bitter chocolate and baked fruits. Warming and charming, with subtle acidity. Very elegant and refined."
Decanter Magazine 94 SILVER MEDAL : Decanter World Wine Awards 2016
Precise, textbook Oloroso, giving aromas of nuts, old wood, caramel, smoked meats, vanilla and caramel. The palate is long and harmonious, with a silky texture,Christmas spices and a saline finish. (07/2016)
