K&L Notes

This sweet Oloroso is crazy good. Off-the-charts, off-the-meter, off-the-hinges good. Excuse the turns of phrase, but the fact is that this Oloroso combines sweetness from a 25% dollop of Pedro Ximenez with the very high acidity of some older barrels of Oloroso, along with all of the requisite deeply burnished, wood-influenced nuttiness and slight rancio character that a VORS (Sherry averaging at least 30 years of age) Oloroso should have. I would be hard pressed to think of a tastier, or classier, sweet after-dinner digestive than this. (Joe Manekin, K&L Sherry Buyer)

    Cinnamon and I drank this last night with an English cheese course of Stilton, Cotswold and cheddar, reliving our first trip to London together. On that trip, we had made a pilgrimage to Neal's Yard Dairy in the old city and bought a similar cheese course to pair with the very first bottle of Gonzalez Byass Matusalem that we had ever tried. Since then, we have been lucky enough to drink it on many occasions, but last night was one of the best. This sherry has a dark mahogany color and the perfume of a wine of a great age. The rich figgy flavors are countered by cheddar like piquancy that made the pairing perfect. The finish is very focused and driven, with rancio notes as well as pure chalky minerality. This wine is plenty sweet, but I will never tire of it, it is dangerously refreshing!
