Saw this recommended by Soliciting Flavours and then by Juancho Asenjo and thought I ought to give it a shot. Picked up a bottle instanter in Bodega Santa Cecilia and, after a short hiatus caused by a headcold, here we are.
A very decent, tasty oloroso. A rich brown in colour and not quite crystaline – ever so slightly turbid. Old barrel and spices on the nose, and old barrel and spices on the palate too – bit of acidity to it. Not high in fruit or juice but plenty of tang and a nice smokey finish too. Enjoyed it more with some pasta – just helped it a little.
Not as big and generous in profile as some but very nice and a great option on the dinner table.
