      Winemaker Notes

      True Amontillados are naturally-aged versions of the best finos, and are totally dry. Napoleon is a rare example of an authentic amontillado from manzanilla origins in a rich yet long, lean and elegant style.

      Panel Tasting

      "A great wine: complex and expressive, melding the deep expression of amontillado and the fresh lightness of manzanilla."-P.T.

      "Glorious amber color with reddish tinges. A nose laden with vanilla, almonds, coconut and mocha. Pungent, punchy palate: firm grip, very intense. Powerfully salty but with an underlying fruit note to soften the briskness. Long and superbly complex: Sherry at its unique best." -S.E.

      "Deep amber hue. Very concentrated, pungent nose of toffee and roasted nuts. Bone dry palate that is very specifically manzanilla with an underlying saltiness. Well balanced and powerful." -N.R.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      Medium amber, nutty... a dry style sherry, also a fine aperitif.
      D 90
      Decanter

      Graceful and complex with layers of buttery toasted nuts, glazed citrus and honey with a saline, mineral backbone and long length.

      Sherry is a fortified wine that comes in many styles from dry to sweet. True Sherry can only be made in Andalucía, Spain where the soil and unique seasonal changes give a particular character to its wines. The process of production—not really the grape—determine the type, though certain types are reserved for certain grapes. Palomino is responsible for most dry styles; Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria are used for blending or for sweet styles.
