Hidalgo Oloroso "Faraon" Sanlucar de Barrameda (500ml) (Previously $19)

SKU #1089956 92 points Wine Spectator

 Intense, with roasted almond, Brazil nut and walnut notes lending this a slightly burly aspect, while gunpowder tea, bitter orange and almond accents add a taut feel through the finish. This is a distinctive, edgy version that Sherry geeks will dig. Drink now. 1,500 cases made  (2/2016)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Faraon Oloroso is aromatic with aromas of hazelnuts, walnuts, and raisins and a broad, dry flavor profile.  (2/2007)

Wine & Spirits

 An accessible Oloroso, this has briny aromas melding with scents of chestnut syrup, all supported on a soft, oily texture.  (6/2011)

K&L Notes

#77 on the 2016 Wine Spectator Top 100! Hidalgo is a classic Sanlucar producer, perhaps best known for their Manzanilla "La Gitana" as well as their Amontillado's. That said, they produced a beautiful, elegant, light on its feet Oloroso as well, which was deservingly honored as one of the top wines of the year by Wine Spectator.
