This is a great bottle of wine.  Of course, only if one likes Sherry in a dry, oxidative style.  The average age of the wines making this up is 40 years old.  Light copper in color. The nose is great though there is some volatile acidity. Nutty, with salinity and slight burnt orange peel. On the palate, this is complex and deep. Dry. Salty with slight nuttiness.  Very open and easy to drink.  Long finish with a hint of bitterness.  This is a contemplative wine and though it might works with some foods, it would be a great wine to have a glass of on a snowy afternoon with a book, or evening by a fire, and drink the bottle over the course of a week or two.  Well stored bottles should last for a decade.
