"The NV Oloroso Asunción is a fortified effort made in a Solera, oxidative, off-dry style and sees 12-15 years in barrel. This medium to full-bodied, sweetly fruited effort has a layered, textured style that makes it a joy to drink as well as terrific notes of spice cabinet, caramel, and sautéed citrus fruits. Its sweetness is beautifully balanced, it has tons of charm, and it’s going to age forever in bottle."

"A pure Pedro Ximenez, aged to an average of 25 years, this has a deep, golden color and notes of toffee and mushroom, as well as a grilled biscuit-like edge. Super focused, sapid and salty mineral finish, amid smooth, layered texture."

"Brown bread and walnut halva notes lead the way, followed by bitter almond, juniper and dried tea leaf accents. Shows a nervy edge on the finish, with racy acidity lending this a high-pitched character."
