Takes a flattering approach, featuring a lightly sweet, rounded edge to the date, blood orange, toasted pecan and fruitcake aromas and flavors, with toasted marshmallow and bourbon-glazed peach notes on the finish. Drink now.óJ.M.

Wine maker notes
The Apostoles Solera was created in 1862 to commemorate the visit of Queen Isabel II of Spain to the vineyard. This rare sherry offers a sublime combination of the dried fruits present in the Palomino grapes, blended with lush sweetness of Pedro Ximenez grapes. More than 30 years ageing lend an impressive concentration to this Muy Viejo (very old) Palo Cortado.

Other text
A palo cortado sherry, a rare variety of sherry that is initially aged under flor to become a fino or amontillado, but inexplicably loses its veil of flor and begins aging oxidatively as an oloroso. The result is a wine with some of the richness of oloroso and some of the crispness of amontillado. Only about 1-2% of the grapes pressed for sherry naturally develop into palo cortado.
