Valdespino, Don Gonzalo, 20 Years VOS Oloroso Sherry, Andalusia, Spain
Tasting Note: This 20-year old sherry abounds with midpalate complexity, depth and oloroso-goodness squared.
You won’t want this oloroso sherry to finish in your glass.
Medium-to-deep-intensity brown in color, this fortified wine has a pronounced, aromatic nose of walnut, chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, brioche, hazelnut, almond, dried apricot, dried apple and honey.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied 20-year-old oloroso sherry expresses pronounced-intensity flavors suggested on the nose with a developed, complex, oxidative character that completes with a long, nutty, slightly-tangy finish.
Among the best of oloroso’s made anywhere.
Price: $25 (375 ml)
