Dark amber in color, with maple, walnut and other sweet-meets-nutty aromas.
A Palo Cortado brings together the finesse and delicacy of an Amontillado on the bouquet with the richness on the palate of an Oloroso. This rare wine, with its amber gold color, dryness and immensely rich flavor, has light chocolate/coffee flavors yet retains plenty of fruit.
Decanter: 93 points
"Tremendously concentrated earthy chestnuts, coffee and chocolate flowing into a savory, mellow palate with linear acidity and an iodine finish."

"Dark amber in color, with maple, walnut and other sweet-meets-nutty aromas. It's a bit tangy, but being as zesty as it is propels maple, white chocolate and apricot flavors. This one has depth and a very long finish, which makes it a regal but still approachable palo cortado. Overall it's similar to an amontillado, but with more pulsing, piercing acidity."
