From the family’s oldest reserve solera, already established in 1792 when the bodega was acquired by Jose Pantaleon Hidalgo. A super-aged sherry, very dry with a lingering saltiness recalling its Manzanilla/Amontillado origins.
Wine Spectator 93 points - Stylish, with a caressing edge to the walnut cream, dried ginger and hazelnut skin notes. Features a core of green tea, Brazil nut and bitter almond flavors, revealing a long, lacy finish. Drink now. From Spain.-J.M. (Dec 9 2015)
Wine Spectator 91 points - Alluring sandalwood and musk notes lead the way, followed by elegant ginger, cedar, date, persimmon and hazelnut husk accents. Offers a brisk, tightly focused finish. Drink now.—J.M. (Jun 18 2014)
