Lustau wines are easy to find and priced attractively.  Don't let the pricing make you think this is low quality.  They are good to great wines .  This one is made in an oxidative style.  Deep copper in color.  The nose is slightly nutty with dried oranges.  Very nice.  On the palate, this is light to medium bodied.  Very smooth.  More orange peel than fruit with a bit of weak tea.  Good finish.  Slight warmth.  This drinks easily and would work well with mixed nuts but also with dried meats or even a roasted veggie or meat soup.
