An excellent value for such a great dessert wine. Incredibly thick and rich with a strong flavor of figs.

A tough one to score, since I'm not into the style (I'm more of a fan of unfortified Sauternes-style dessert wines). For what it is, it's one of the best I've had. Very interesting color: brown, with no redness. Cloyingly sweet, to be sure, and full of raisins, prunes and figs. Still, there's none of that Port-y weirdness on the finish that turns me off, and the alcohol level is relatively restrained at 16%. Given the score, I can't necessarily recommend it as a QPR wine, but just for the sheer interest, I definitely don't regret picking up a bottle. At $20, it's a safe experiment. I can't wait to try the leftovers over ice cream!

From a solera that is now in its 8th decade this elegant dessert sherry has a dark amber hue with flavors of crme brle marmalade and toasted hazelnuts. Not nearly as syrupy as might be expected it finishes long and clean. Wonderful when slightly chilled either with rich desserts or on its own.
