Bottled March 9th 2007. 100% Palomino Fino. Amontillados begin life as finos or manzanillas, but the flor layer is either naturally or intentionally destroyed, so the fino wines become exposed to oxygen while in the solera system. Beautiful tawny brown color which is similar to older tawny ports. Aromatic nose of roasted nuts, dried raisins, a little sweet tobacco. Medium to full bodied, 18.5% abv, good acidity, rich nutty finish with a slight perception of sweetness but finishing completely dry. Not to complex and I would prefer it better if it were a little fresher but a good solid amontillado none the less. 3/5

Reticent aromas of almonds and limestone give way to this wineandrsquo;s generous flavors of green apple and a subtle touch of orange zest. Itandrsquo;s all shaped by spritzy, mouthwatering acidity. Best Buy.

Elegant and classically proportioned, this sherry gives you plenty of briny freshness but adds a rich, smoky, nutty complexity. It's clean and long on the finish, vibrant and harmonious. Beautifully crafted.

A classic dark Amontillado for soup or marrow on toast, this wine tastes of roasted bones, of tangerine and almond oil, of fresher fruit, like the flesh of pear. The dark, unctuous character parallels Madeira, but itandrsquo;s both fresher and more pleasingly bitter in a Sherry sense.

This very affordable Sherry offers a terrific combination of freshness in its walnut and iodine notes and the caramel-molasses component derived from oxidation, making this vibrant Amontillado a winner. Delicious nut and molasses aftertaste. Drink now.

Last reviewed in 1994 and rated three Stars. Bronze/burnished orange color; unblemished purity. Initial inhalations encounter deep aromas of leather bound books, butterscotch, and prunes; more time in the glass deepens the leathery aspect and adds a pleasing note of walnut. Entry is lean, clean, tart, and astringent; midpalate features the acidic dried fruit element that dominates the taste profile. Ends cleansing, very tart, and austere. Three Star rating stands. Recommended.

The dry, medium amber-hued non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos offers good body as well as a heady personality.
