Valdespino "Solera 1842" VOS Oloroso Jerez (375ml)

SKU #1054937 92 points Wine & Spirits

 Soft notes of sweet, dried fruits lead into this subtle Oloroso. The flavors balance saline and sweet elements, an elegant composition that finishes fresh and clean. Serve this with scallops au gratin.  (10/ 2008)

Wine Spectator

 Rich and full-bodied, this sweet oloroso ranges from bitter chocolate and rum-and-raisin ice cream to caramel and roasted walnuts. Pleasantly astringent finish. Drink now. (Web-2008)

K&L Notes

This exceptional old Sherry is made from a Solera established in 1842 and the youngest components of the blend are at least 20 years old. It is the most "rancio" of any of the Sherries that we carry, and has an old fashioned intensity that is sure to impress. A small amount of Pedro Ximenez gives the wine balance. This exceptional wine is a perfect partner to strong cheese and paired with a few would make a great dessert. (Gary Westby, K&L Wine Merchants)
