This is all the cheese plate items minus the actual cheese, in a glass. Omigod what if cheese plates included Sherry? Would that be overkill? What if I started a wine bar and it was all just cheese and Sherry? I guess I’d desire a crust of bread at some point too, but when do I not want bread? Never. Ahem. This is salty marcona almonds and deeply caramelized to the point of being pleasingly bitter-NOT-sweet walnuts and mildly olive-esque brine-y and then there are some dried apricots in the mix plus a glass of lemon water (not that I’ve ever been served lemon water with a cheese plate but maybe it’s the equivalent of the plate accoutrements plus a glass of Gavi). Seriously though? This Sherry is a great cheese plate.

Refined complexity. Lighter yet balanced. So versatile.

Hell yeah. Such a wonderful, round mouthfeel with intoxicating aromas that pull you in from the very first whiff. I want to just sit and eat olives, cured meats and aged cheeses on a shaded patio in the late afternoon. Wonderfully complex layers and nuances on the mid and back end of the palate share a great nutty character as well as the longevity of oak exposure. I likened it to the flavors on the mid-palate of my favorite Bourbons, without the heat. Standing ovation.

Great amontillado. Still plenty of flor character, a wisp of caramel and nut tones.

One can taste the nuanced, piquant flor character along with toasted almonds and kernels of grain. Sublime.
