A Palo Cortado brings together the finesse and delicacy of an Amontillado with the richness of an Oloroso. This rare wine, with its amber gold color, dryness and immensely rich flavor, has light chocolate/coffee flavors yet retains plenty of fruit. The Palo Cortado 'Peninsula' should be served very lightly chilled in a copita or wine glass. It is ideal as an aperitif with nuts or cheese, or as a digestif after a meal.

Wine EnthusiastDark amber in color, with maple, walnut and other sweet-meets-nutty aromas. It's a bit tangy, but being as zesty as it is propels maple, white chocolate and apricot flavors. This one has depth and a very long finish, which makes it a regal but still approachable palo cortado. Overall it's similar to an amontillado, but with more pulsing, piercing acidity.

International Wine CellarDeep orange-pecan amber. Aromas of orange peel and sea salt. Smooth, exotic and delicious: a balanced, harmonious sherry, with a lovely, lingering finish of green olives, citrus and hints of dried fruit. 90 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer

Wine SpectatorCaramel, bittersweet chocolate and iodine notes mingle in this rich Sherry. Feels a little alcoholic, pulling it out of balance, with a dry, tactile finish.
