Lustau East India Solera Sherry
|Region||Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla|
Wine EnthusiastThis is a ripe, honeyed style of Sherry with deep brown sugar and cinnamon aromas. Its solid palate is under control and not syrupy, tapering into brown sugar and fig flavors. Chocolate and fig notes linger on the long finish.
Wine SpectatorRich and concentrated with coffee and caramel flavors in a balanced presentation. Picks up a grilled nut accent on the finish. Solid and complex, but not cloying.
International Wine CellarDeep mahogany color. Pure, distinctly dried-fruit (figs and dates) nose. A luscious, decidedly sweet, but balanced dessert wine with coffee, chocolate, date and apricot flavors. 90 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer
