Xixarito Oloroso

I am all over these funky labels from Bodegas Baron – love it.

 

The wine inside is tasty too – a mellow, meaty oloroso with a lot of (dry) burnt brown sugar and not too much acidity or alcoholic heat. Maybe a little bit underpowered, if one was going to be critical, but full of black treacle flavour. Went superbly with a meaty stew. 

All in all a really enjoyable glass of wine and one of the more drinkable olorosos around.
