La Cigarrera Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda 100year Amontillado NV

Member Review by ryanopaz:

en Rama(un filtered) The wine is light pale gold and with a very light haze. Nose off honey, white flowers, almond and light melon. The palate gives a creamy dry sensation with salt, light vanillla, wood, and almond. Overall very soft in the mouth with a refreshing finish that lingers. Very enjoyable. alt=3.5 [NR]

Bonny Doon Vineyard:

Based in Santa Cruz, the heartland of New Age thinking and dreaming, Bonny Doon Vineyard has a not so surprising history of idealism and innovation. Founded in 1983 by Randall Grahm, Bonny Doon is known for strikingly original wines made from “lesser” known grape varieties, the so-called vinous Ugly Ducklings. Originally focused on pinot noir, Bonny Doon Vineyard made its mark on the vinous world with its pioneering work with Rhône varieties and innovative production techniques. Since the adoption of Biodynamic® farming practices in 2004, Bonny Doon Vineyard wines evince a deeper sense of place, complexity, varietal expression and a noticeable sense of organization. We invite you to share in our most passionate and terrestrial expressions ~ the wines of Bonny Doon Vineyard. To all our Big House and Cardinal Zin Fans: In an effort to return to our roots and re-focus on the production of unique and distinctive, biodynamically produced wines truly expressive of place, President and Winemaker Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard sold the rapidly growing BIG HOUSE and CARDINAL ZIN brands in July 2006 to the Wine Group, a management-owned wine company based in San Francisco. “I had been raving on long enough about the transcendental value of terroir; it was time to translate mere words into deeds. Today, the winery is much smaller, just 35,000 cases (and shrinking) we’re making fewer kinds of wine and we’re highly focused on making the most soulful wines we can possibly muster – wines of vibrant vitality, a deeper sense of place and life force.” Read less

Deep rich slightly muted brown color. The nose is carcoal, burnt caramel, wood, dusty earth, almond and even some chocolate. Very rich and complex while completely dry in the mouth the body and depth of flavors makes you think of sweetness. Almonds, salt air, wood, caramel, and toffee all are present on the palate. The finish is a good 20+seconds. 3.5/5 [NR]

Pale brown color. Nose is full of hazelnut and light wood varnish. The palate on the other hand shows the salt ait, more nuts, light wood and faint carmel notes. The wine is fully dry with a medium body and noticeable alcohol though the finish is nice and soft while lingering for a good 20 seconds or more. 3.5/5 [NR]

Not that different in color from their regular amontillado which averages 10-15yrs in age. Nose of sweet carmel, brown sugar, vanilla cake dough, and a salt sea air quality. Flavors are dusty melon, nuts, a light wood varnish, almonds, and lasts for over 30seconds. Very similar to the younger version except for the fact that the flavors seem more concentrated and richer overall. Definatly a treat to taste this. 4/5 [NR]
