Cayetano del Pino, Palo Cortado 1/10 Sherry VOS, Andalucía, Spain
Tasting Note: A Palo Cortado Sherry with attractive aromatics that accentuate this rare wine.
Deep-intensity amber in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of brioche, butter, toast, toasted almons, hazelnut and rancio with hints of vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Palo Cortado Sherry has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose ultimately completing with a toasty, long finish.
There is complexity in the midpalate that is rich without being ostentatious.
Price: $63 (50 cl)
Tasted: La Carboná Restaurant, Jerez de la Frontera, Spain
