Tasting Notes

Part of the repetoire of this bodega dating back to the 19th Century, the vermouth has finally been branded and bottled for the States. A deft blending of oloroso and moscatel as a base, is infused with various plants, botanicals and spices before finally being aged in casks that previously held oloroso sherry. A great addition to the category.

Staff Pick Notes

If run-of-the-mill vermouth is on your shopping list, pick another one. This is the exact opposite. The aromas on this are a bomb of dried herbs including thyme, oregano and rosemary. The palate shows a delicate and balanced sweetness accompanied by citrus and nutty flavors. Guest cameos include clove, chamomile, and wormwood. Where is all of this coming from?! How can so much be packed into this small bottle?! Let's start with the producer. The venerable sherry house Valdespino is behind this elixir and the base is a blend of Oloroso (my favorite!) and Moscatel, with a carefully chosen profile of various plant extracts. Fruit, flowers, herbs, and spices intermingle so well that this star shines brightly on its own. Just add ice and enjoy.

In Rioja, Navarra, and the Ribera del Duero (which have the...

Sherry actually gets its name from our anglo-inability to pronounce the word “Jerez,” the town at the southern end of Spain in which the wine is produced. Like Champagne, Sherry can only be called Sherry if it comes from this specific region. That said, there are other “Sherry-styled” wines worthy of note produced outside of the Sherry D.O. (known as vinos generosos). Montilla, lying to the...
