Bodegas Faustino González, Cruz Vieja En Rama Oloroso Sherry, Andalucía, Spain
Tasting Note: Oloroso with an authentic En-Rama kick.
Medium-to-deep-intensity amber in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of brioche, half-baked bread dough, toasted walnut, almond, rancio and butter with a hint of leather.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Oloroso Sherry has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.
You’ll look for more En Rama, straight-from-the-barrel Oloroso after you try this.
