Lustau "Penisula Solera Reserva" Palo Cortado Jerez

SKU #1045177 90 points Wine & Spirits

 This refined Palo Cortado quickly moves beyond its initial almond syrup scents to focus on its saline side, with a mineral austerity that lasts through the finish. A powerful wine for charcuterie.  (6/ 2011)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Dark amber in color, with maple, walnut and other sweet-meets-nutty aromas. Itís a bit tangy, but being as zesty as it is propels maple, white chocolate and apricot flavors. This one has depth and a very long finish, which makes it a regal but still approachable palo cortado. Overall itís similar to an amontillado, but with more pulsing, piercing acidity.  (2/ 2009)

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The dark amber NV Palo Cortado Peninsula has a sweet nose like ripe cherries and caramel, while the palate is completely dry, with notes of cashews, candied oranges and an oxidative character. A Palo Cortado on the delicate side. Drink 2013-2016.  (8/ 2013)

Wine Spectator

 This leads with smoked orange peel and date notes, backed by a dry, defined core of clove, woodspice and prune eau de vie flavors that linger through the finish. Drink now.  (2/ 2012)
