External Reviews for Barbadillo Amaroso San Rafael Oloroso Dulce
Sweet and viscous in texture, sporting caramel, chocolate and prune notes that pick up a pleasant bitterness on the finish, balancing the whole presentation. Drink now.
Sweet and caramellike, this oloroso is similar in style to a good 10-year-old tawny port. It has verve, cut and terrific length on the finish. Delicious. Drink now.
Seriously pretty deep copper/henna color; ideal purity. Early aroma comes off a touch sour but it still has a fruity succulence and yeastiness that screams “Sherry”; aeration doesn’t alter the bouquet’s direction. Entry is semisweet, raisiny, and nicely acidic; midpalate concentrates more on the dried fruit aspect, mostly white raisins and pineapple. Ends up sweet/sour, succulent and very ripe.
