Reviews

  • "95 points. The NV Antique Oloroso is open and expressive in the nose, with a predominant note of hazelnuts and varnished wood, a sweet touch of spices, brandy filled chocolates and orange rind. The perfectly balanced palate shows intense, clean, pure flavors and great length. 5,000 bottles produced yearly. Drink 2013-2016." (Robert Parker)
  • "93 points. This is gorgeous, with warm gingerbread, Christmas pudding and incense aromas wafting up ahead of a core of persimmon, date, toffee, peanut brittle and salted caramel notes. The long, green tea-edged finish harnesses all the elements, driven by well-embedded acidity. Drink now. 665 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
