El Maestro Sierra Oloroso VORS 1/14 Jerez de la Frontera (375ml)

SKU #1061672 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The (Vinos Viejos) Oloroso 1/14 VORS is medium amber and spicier than its predecessor, with just noticeable sweetness, complex flavors (toffee and caramel come to mind) and outstanding length. (JM)  (2/2007)

93 points Wine & Spirits

 A deliciously seductive combination of salty flavors and caramel notes, this is the kind of blend you will only find in Jerez, a juxtaposition of something like dried oysters bathed in drops of almond syrup. The creaminess of the texture makes the structure more approachable. A formidable Oloroso from 50-year-old wines and an ideal match for smoked sardines.  (6/2011)

K&L Notes

El Maestro Sierra is a terrific boutique Sherry bodega in Jerez de la Frontera. Originally founded by a master carpenter, Jose Antonio Sierra, who was in the business of creating barrels for other Sherry bodegas, the bodega is now owned by three women. That's right, in this very male-dominated segment of the Spanish wine business, three women call the shots! El Maestro Sierra has terrific older soleras, including this one for oloroso. The wine is as profound, nuanced, and powerful a sherry as one could hope for. Truly a spectacular wine, the flavors are of intense dried fruits, surprisingly dry, and walnuts. Needless to say, this wine keeps on going and going in the mouth. This is a spectacular treat for any connoisseur of rare wines, and amid an impressive lineup is always my favorite wine from the El Maestro stable. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
