  4. Osborne Sibarita Oloroso 30 Years VORS Sherry 500ml
    WS93
    WA94
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! The NV Sibarita Oloroso VORS is produced with Palomino grapes, balanced with 2% of Pedro Ximenez, something quite common to polish the edges of very old wines, in a solera created in 1792. It has a dark mahogany color, and the nose shows some toffee notes intermixed with roasted coffee, tar, ash and incense. The palate shows good depth, strong acidity, well compensated by the sweetness, and a slightly bitter finish. It stands apart from other Olorosos, with a unique range of aromas and flavors. 1,500 bottles are filled each year. Drink 2013-2020 - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

  5. Osborne Amontillado 51-1A 30 years VORS Sherry 500ml
    WS93
    WA95
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! The NV Amontillado 51-1A VORS, from a solera created in 1830 has a bright amber color. Intensely aromatic, with a nose full of balsamic notes (rosemary, thyme) intermixed with some smoke, spices, noble woods and hazelnuts. The intense, complex and complete palate shows great elegance and finesse, with a bitter orange and saline finish that makes it very tasty. Extremely long. Only 600 bottles are filled each year. This bottle would last, age and improve, probably for many years. Drink 2013-2020. - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

  6. Bodegas Tradicion Fino Viejo Saca de Marso 2014
    WA93
    $39.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    93 Points!  There are two yearly bottlings of the NV Fino Viejo Tradición, one in the spring and another one in the autumn, sometimes marked with the month and sometimes with the season. This one specified Primavera 2016 (spring 2016) must have been recently bottled (or even just before bottling). I had three different bottlings to taste side by side, which is really interesting, as these wines, like all, develop in bottle contrary to what it was said before - that they spoiled in bottle and had to be drunk ASAP. This is the freshest of the three, and the flor is still there, very tender, with more citric aromas and notes reminiscent of the fresh yeasts - the 'flor'. The difference between 'sacas' are always subtle, and at the end of the day the differences between wines is also very much marked by how long ago the wine was bottled. So I decided to go back to grouping the different bottlings under one same wine and just specify the lot/saca/bottling date in the tasting note. This recent one reminded me a lot of the other when tasted young, with a character of an old, traditional fino; not shy of showing a dark golden color or an expressive, slightly oxidative nose with plenty of influence of the yeasts, under which it has been for ten to 12 years. The character has the holy trinity of fino, chalk, esparto grass and brine. This has become one of the most consistent and best old Finos around. They always bottle some 3,000 bottles. - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate #224

  7. Cruse Wine Company Tannat Alder Springs Vineyard 2015
    VM90
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points!  Michael Cruse's 2015 Tannat Alder Springs is bold and intense, and yet the huge tannins typical of this variety have been largely tamed. A host of earthy, savory notes add aromatic complexity to the deeply expressive, varietal fruit. The 2015 is bold and rustic (there is only so much one can do with Tannat) and yet all the elements are beautifully balanced. The Tannat was vinified in concrete and aged in barrel. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

  8. Bodegas Tradicion Oloroso VORS 30 Years
    WA95
    $94.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    95 Points!  The single vintage wines are different, but they are not necessarily better than the solera wines. In fact I preferred the Oloroso VORS to the two single-vintage; I found it more complex and fluid, while the single vintages were more concentrated and powerful, but not as nuanced. I’m talking about the NV Tradicion Oloroso VORS, on average 45-50 years old, which gives the wine a concentration of glycerin and dry extract that is amazing. Silky, very interesting to see the wine that has been blended over the years is more complex. The proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove, it is full-bodied, and still follows the same, clean, elegant, precise line of the rest of the wines from Tradicion. Drink 2013-2025.  Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #208, August 2013

  9. Bodegas Tradicion Amontillado VORS 30 Years
    WA96
    $94.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    96 Points!  The NV Tradicion Amontillado VORS, certainly has the more complex and subtle nose of all these VORS and is on average 45 years old. It has a very clean nose, with elegance and complexity, powerful but subtle notes of hazelnuts, honey and even some dates. The medium-bodied palate shows a sharp wine with strong salinity, it has the power and the lightness, in a very difficult combination. Drink 2013-2020.  Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #208, August 2013

  10. Bodegas Tradicion Palo Cortado VORS 30 Years
    WA94
    $119.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  The NV Palo Cortado Tradicion VORS, averages 32 years of age, which they consider the correct age for Palo Cortado, so it is not just an old Sherry. Light amber-colored, the nose has a sweet sensation, apricots, and almonds but then the mouth is very dry and saline, fine and light, with flavors of hazelnut, a little varnish, very elegant, intense, pungent, a little spirity. It has a delineated palate, superb intensity, and very long finish. Classical, elegant, clean, intense and delicate could be common deors for all their wines. A textbook Palo Cortado. Drink 2013-2019.  Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #208, August 2013

  13. Lustau Palo Cortado Peninsula
    WS92
    WA96
    VM92
    $23.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  A mind-blowing sherry is the non-vintage Palo Cortado Peninsula Solera Reserva. Like all Lustau sherries except for the East India, it is made from the Palomino varietal. A dry, crisp, full-throttle, intense sherry offering incredibly complex, nutty aromas, it represents a style that falls between the Amontillado and the more oxidized, heavier Oloroso. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #202

  14. Equipo Navazos La Bota de Palo Cortado Lot 47 375ml
    WA99
    Special Price $119.98 Regular Price $150.00
    Availability:In Stock
    99 Points!  Another wine that but for the Amontillado 49 would be a candidate for a perfect score, the NV La Bota de Palo Cortado Bota NO 47 is an extremely old Palo Cortado most probably from a good vineyard within the Pago Miraflores in Sanlúcar and made at a time when the musts were fermented in barrel. This wine is now around 80 years old, and comes from a solera that used to belong to Gaspar Florido. The 22% alcohol is the result of sheer concentration. This is one single cask, marked as NO (kept for the owners). The color is a bright mahogany, with a green border, denoting extreme age and a nose with some gunpowder, tar and mineral reduction. The palate combines the extreme intensity of the 49 and the balance and approachable character of the 51 along with piercing acidity and flavors. It is ultra-concentrated and has an incredibly long finish; a beast of a wine. You feel the sharpness of a razor going down your throat, with concentrated sea water, salty, mineral finish. This has real energy and power, only shadowed because the number 49 exists, and also a step closer to being an Amontillado. Bottled in December 2013 into 1,200 half bottles.  Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #216, December 2014
