Light amber in color. Nutty and dry with nuances of vanilla, mocha and dark chocolate. Dry and concentrated, this wine has a long and elegant finish. This exceptional sherry brings together the finesse and delicacy of an Amontillado with the richness and body of an Oloroso. An extremely versatile wine. Aged in Bodega la Emperatriz Eugenia in Jerez de la Frontera. Ideal with artichokes, consommés, cold and smoked meats, foie-gras. It is a perfect wine to accompany spicy Asian cuisine.

Wine SpectatorInviting, with pecan, bitter singed almond and cardamom notes, backed by singed cedar, black walnut and cocoa powder accents. The open, friendly finish lets a date hint play out. Drink now.

International Wine CellarDeep orange-pecan amber. Aromas of orange peel and sea salt. Smooth, exotic and delicious: a balanced, harmonious sherry, with a lovely, lingering finish of green olives, citrus and hints of dried fruit. 90 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer

Wine EnthusiastA smooth blend of chocolate, fig and smoky oak aromas leads to a full palate that includes waves of citric acidity. The flavors quickly move from dry citrus to mushroom and toasted hazelnut. With its malty finish, this makes you want to sauté something while drinking it.

Wine AdvocateThe dark amber NV Palo Cortado Peninsula has a sweet nose like ripe cherries and caramel, while the palate is completely dry, with notes of cashews, candied oranges and an oxidative character. A Palo Cortado on the delicate side.
