Bodegas Dios Baco S.L. NV 20 Years Old Baco Imperial Amontillado Palomino (Jerez)

  1. $80
Caramel, toffee, roasted nut and citrus aromas are prominent. A buttery mouthfeel gets a boost from vital acidity, while semisour, direct flavors of apricot and persimmon are offset by warm nuttiness. Toasted nut and sautéed mushroom flavors control the finish, which is a mile long.  — M.S.  (12/1/2014)

Bodegas Dios Baco S.L. NV 20 Yr. Baco Imperial Amontillado Palomino (Jerez)

  1. $80
Reticent caramel and walnut aromas come with a peach scent. It feels nice as it glides across the palate, with nervy, salty flavors of dried apricots and nuts. Toffee and peanut are the lead flavors on the classy finish. Only 300 cases were produced.  — M.S.  (11/1/2012)

Bodegas Dios Baco S.L. NV 30 Yr. Old Baco Imperial Oloroso Palomino (Jerez)

This is lush smelling but dry at the same time, with touches of caramel and cola gracing the bouquet. It feels tight and pinched, but precise, with dried citrus, toffee and hazelnut flavors. The finish is briney, complex and very long. Only 300 cases were made.  — M.S.  (11/1/2012)

González Byass NV Leonor Palo Cortado Palomino (Jerez)

  1. $25
This dry Sherry is a touch hot, with alcohol swirling around the glass, but there’s also complex, welcoming aromas of almond, apricot and toffee. The palate is appropriately rich, with flavors of caramel, toasted nuts and buttered toast. A finish with walnut, truffle and mushroom flavors urges contemplation.  — M.S.  (10/1/2013)

González Byass NV Alfonso Oloroso Seco Palomino (Jerez)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $20
Tilts towards sweet on the nose, where maple, molasses, pecan and baked fruit aromas hold court. The palate is layered and lively, with a nice blend of pit fruits, toast, nuts and butter. Long and elegant on the finish, it’s highly drinkable and enjoyable within the oloroso class.  — M.S.  (10/1/2011)

Osborne NV Fino Quinta Palomino (Jerez)

  • Best Buy
  1. $14
The differences between a good fino and a great fino are usually slight, but this one has pretty much all one could ask for. The nose is crisp, with hints of sea breeze, peanut and tart apple showing through. In the mouth, there’s snap, saline and mineral-laden white fruits. Nothing is out of bounds.  — M.S.  (6/1/2005)

Hidalgo NV Marqués de Rodil Especial Palo Cortado Palomino (Jerez)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $45
Nutty and toasty, with toffee and butter pecan aromas. The palate is wet, light, alert and snappy, but also angular and citrusy. The acidity here is key; it pushes dried apricot and tangy flavors toward a nutty finish, and overall the wine delivers what a good, higher-end palo cortado should.  — M.S.  (12/15/2010)

González Byass NV Tio Pepe en Rama Palomino (Jerez)

  1. $25
This high-end fino from Tio Pepe is yeasty and shows a flor-related character. In addition, there are aromas of apple, toasted almond and turpentine. The palate is full for fino, with yeasty weight cut by acidity. Flavors of crisp, dry, salty almond and apple finish juicy, with a note of sautéed mushroom.  — M.S.  (10/1/2013)
