Emilio Lustau Single Cask Dry Oloroso Sherry ($19.99)
Very clear dark amber color, with a delicious aroma of fresh pecans, characteristic Sherry, full and appealing, with nuances of mixed nuts, brazil nuts and cashews, to lend complexity. The flavor is very full-bodied and dry, no hint of residual sugar, with mouth-filling nutlike flavors consistent with the nose, all framed by warm alcohol and snappy acidity. The appetizing quality of fresh cracked pecans carries through in a very long finish. US Importer: Europvin USA, Emeryville, Calif. (Jul 11, 2002)
FOOD MATCH: Fine sipped by itself as either an aperitif or after-dinner drink; marries nicely with a mild, nutlike Swiss or French cheese like Fol d'Epi or Emmenthaler.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
