Lustau Amontillado Los Arcos
|Region||Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla, Amontillado|
Wine SpectatorThis very affordable Sherry offers a terrific combination of freshness from the walnut and iodine notes and the caramel-molasses component derived from oxidation, making this vibrant Amontillado a winner. Delicious nut and molasses aftertaste. Drink now.
Wine EnthusiastLustau calls it dry but Los Arcos definitely has some aromatic and palate sweetness. The nose settles on brown sugar, peach, mixed nuts and honey. It's not super tight or acidic, and thus the palate drips maple and molasses. Medium-bodied and balanced, but with that shot of sugar offset by honest but mellow acids.
