Dark brown color. Aromas of dark sautéed almonds drizzled with sherry and fleur de sel, cocoa-dusted figs, toffee, and caramel apple with a fat body and a very long peach chutney, spicy raisin walnut cake, pink pepper, and pecan finish. A rich, penetrating example of a domestic creamy Sherry with yummy honeyed fruit and nut flavors.
