Tasting Notes

A complex, sweet wine with more secondary characters than pretty floral notes. Amber, with dried and roasted nuts. A distinct touch of bay leaf adds herbal complexity. Unusual, as it was aged in French oak in a five-year Solera system, this balanced after-dinner wine should be paired with melty, complex cow's milk cheeses, or salty, fatty Iberico.

This is a sweet wine, but it's also supremely balanced by tangy acidity and the ability to be light on its feet. A wine like this needs to be paired with an equally amazing cheese. A semi-soft Flor de Guía, a cow/sheep/goat cheese that's native to the Canary Islands, will be just fine.
