Three kings

  

Three superb wines – the Tresillo 1874, the Amontillado Sacristia AB, and the Cuatro Palmas. Looking at this picture I am overcome with guilt at the gluttony of it all. (You may be overcome by the table cloth). Boy was this fun.

I have written about all three wines separately but it was great to taste them – all rare aged amontillados – together. Of the three the Cuatro Palmas was the more elegant, the Sacristia maybe a little bit juicier, but the Tresillo 1874 stood out a little bit: it had just a little bit more of the structure, acidity and all around zing of a really great wine.
