Gon­za­lez Byass Sol­era 1847 Oloroso Dulce. Jerez, Spain - $20.80

Montreal Times - - Wine -

On the nose, tof­fee, choco­late with aro­mas of dried figs, prunes and raisins. In ad­di­tion, nu­ances of wal­nut liqueur ( frangelico) and hazel­nut cream. Cof­fee. Dif­fer­ent kinds of woods such as san­dal­wood to name just one. On the mouth, al­right, but ac­tu­ally I feel the bal­ance be­tween sweet­ness, acid­ity and her­bal savouri­ness hits a sweet spot. Deep oaky notes again, leath­ery notes and dark choco­late. In the fi­nale, a cer­tain heat as well, prob­a­bly be­cause of the many herbs and spices (cloves, soft pep­per). Roasted nuts and Espresso fi­nale. 90\100.
