Lustau Dry Amontillado "Los Arcos" Solera Reserva
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dry, medium amber-hued non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos offers good body as well as a heady personality.
*Top 100 Wines of 2012* A more flattering style, with an off-dry edge to the walnut paste, hazelnut, date and clove-studded orange notes, which show nice focus and zip on the finish.
Wine & Spirits
Light and approachable, with the soft texture of a dry white wine, this offers freshness, salinity and soft, nutty touches.
Lustau calls it dry but Los Arcos definitely has some aromatic and palate sweetness. The nose settles on brown sugar, peach, mixed nuts and honey. It’s not super tight or acidic, and thus the palate drips maple and molasses. Medium-bodied and balanced, but with that shot of sugar offset by honest but mellow acids.
