Press Reviews

93WINE ENTHUSIAST

A burnished orange-meets-tawny color and lively aromas of caramel and apricot get this oloroso off to a fine start. A richly intense palate with bold acidity offers plenty of depth, while toasty flavors of coffee and walnuts finish with notes of chocolate and cafe latte. Overall, this is stylish and a cut above.

92JEB DUNNUCK

The NV Oloroso Asunción is a fortified effort made in a Solera, oxidative, off-dry style and sees 12-15 years in barrel. This medium to full-bodied, sweetly fruited effort has a layered, textured style that makes it a joy to drink as well as terrific notes of spice cabinet, caramel, and sautéed citrus fruits. Its sweetness is beautifully balanced, it has tons of charm, and it’s going to age forever in bottle.

92JAMES SUCKLING

A pure pedro ximenez, aged to an average of 25 years, this has a deep, golden color and notes of toffee and mushroom, as well as a grilled biscuit-like edge. Super focused, sapid and salty mineral finish, amid smooth, layered texture. Drink now.

91WINE SPECTATOR

Brown bread and walnut halva notes lead the way, followed by bitter almond, juniper and dried tea leaf accents. Shows a nervy edge on the finish, with racy acidity lending this a high-pitched character.

90ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

Dark amber in color, the NV Asuncion Oloroso (100% Pedro Ximenez) shows honeyed caramel, nuts and almond-paste, but is richer and gives the impression of a relatively dry finish.
