Gran Vino Sanson Bacarles Dessert Wine

Member Review by Therese10:

This is a dessert/aperitif wine from Spain. Very unique flavor, complex & sweet with a lingering finish. The Spanish name Sanson comes from the old testament: Book of Judges Samson the hero of super strenght and virility. Historically Gran vino Sanson was known to hold secret medicinal benfefits which led to much of its early success. Ps. it's a steal. Reminds me of cream sherry but smoother and much more pruney taste. 16.5% It is available through Higos de Antonio Barcelo.

Sanson Estate Winery:
We have a very old unopened bottle of Gran Vino Sanson that was given to us 15 years ago.   Is there any information on this?  I did find a picture online of a bottle from 1905 of the exact bottle.  ANY information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Donna Tamplet 757-59-3898 dtamplet@hotmail.com

This is a sweet dessert wine with a molasses flavor that will initially surprise you with its flavor but becomes very nice.

Es un vino dulce delicioso!! Mi abuela me lo dió a probar cuando yo era una adolescente y desde entonces, recuerdo su exquisito sabor. Lo volveré a comprar para que no falte en mi bodega y se lo aconsejo a todos.
