This is a relatively inexpensive bottle of sherry (I paid $10 on sale). Light golden in color. The nose is very nice; nuts, slight caramel, slight saline and of course "Sherried". On the palate, this is dry. Nutty with some caramel notes. A bit of bitterness. Some alcohol. Deep and texture. Contemplative. Long finish. Great value. It really does perform much better with salty foods.
