VOS stands for Very Old Sherry meaning that the wines in the solera average 20 to 25 years old. The solera was actually first started in the 1800's. This is a beautiful wine. Deep copper in color. The nose is great. Mild but deep. Oranges, slight butterscotch, smoke and slight vanilla. On the palate, this has a nice coffee quality with dark chocolate and nuts. It is dry though would work for dessert. This is a contemplative wine that would be great to sip on its own, slowly, but will work with roasted meats or stews. It seems like this will last for at least ten years in a good cellar.
