K&L Notes

Produced from a rare 10-barrel solera, this is a terrifically balanced amontillado. Nutty aromas, with a touch of toffee and a rancio character, lead to a wonderfully dry amontillado, with flavors of toasted nuts, nuances of dried fruits and just a hint of cocoa. Perfectly balanced amontillado from one of our favorite Lustau "almacenistas," José Luis Gonzales Obregon.

This is a very rich Amontillado that verges on Oloroso territory without finally making it over the fence. Starting out quite dry, salty and nutty, you then find a mounting sweetness and flavors of fig, date and dried fruit, complemented by an almost meaty-savory dimension. The finish brings back echoes of the drier side of this wine’s personality. This is a good candidate for richer, heartier fare where fino fears to tread.
