Light amber in color. Nutty and dry with nuances of vanilla, mocha and dark chocolate. Dry and concentrated, this wine has a long and elegant finish.
Serve at 13 – 14ºC. /55 – 57ºF/ Ideal with artichokes, consommés, cold and smoked meats, foie-gras. It is a perfect wine to accompany spicy Asian cuisine.
Decanter – “Tremendously concentrated earthy chestnuts, coffee and chocolate flowing into a savory, mellow palate with linear acidity and an iodine finish.” (93 Pts)
Wine Enthusiast – “Dark amber in color, with maple, walnut and other sweet-meets-nutty aromas. It’s a bit tangy, but being as zesty as it is propels maple, white chocolate and apricot flavors. This one has depth and a very long finish, which makes it a regal but still approachable palo cortado. Overall it’s similar to an amontillado, but with more pulsing, piercing acidity.” (90 Pts)
