Sherry

Sherry is a fortified wine made from white grapes from a denominated region in southwest Spain. Sherry is produced in a wide variety of styles from lighter, dry versions to darker and sweeter examples, and bottles are labeled according to their dryness as fino, manzanilla, oloroso, amontillado or palo cortado. The dominant grape used for the production of these wines is Palomino. There are also sweet sherries made from or blended with Pedro Ximenez or Moscatel grapes.

Sanchez Romate NV Cardenal Cisneros Reservas Pedro Ximénez (Jerez)

  • Best Buy
  1. $15
This reserve-level P.X. sets the gold standard for excellence in sweet sherry. The lovely bouquet straddles the line between unadulterated sweetness and impeccable slyness. The flavors of fig, chocolate, caramel, browned butter and cinnamon are amazing. So chewy and thick, but balanced by firm acids. Brilliant.  — M.S.  (10/1/2005)

Osborne NV Pedro Ximenez 1827 Sweet Sherry (Jerez)

  • Best Buy
  1. $14
A spectacularly sweet and rich bruiser, and one that delivers the essence of raisins, toffee and chocolate. This wine hasn’t taken one turn south, and it’s beckoning to be consumed. The finish is impeccably smooth and rich, and while its luscious to say the least, the amazing thing is its length, which runs a couple of minutes, no joke. A guarantee for anyone who…  — M.S.  (8/1/2003)

Alvear NV Solera 1927 Pedro Ximénez (Montilla-Moriles)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $25
A rank well above most PX sweeties, with lush but fresh aromas of raisin and spice that are distinctly not syrupy or heavy. Feels thick, but there’s enough acidity to cut through the wine’s weight. Flavors of caramel and chocolate are ideal, and the finish is smooth, not heavy, and has bounce in its step. A beautiful PX any way you cut it.  — M.S.  (4/1/2012)

Lustau NV Almacenista Palo Cortado de Jerez Sherry (Jerez)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $42
A beautiful style of elevated Sherry that’s worth every cent if fine Sherry is to your liking. The nose is pure toffee, roasted nuts, apricot and mellow quince, while the key flavor is dried orange and the nuances hinted at by the aromas all reappear. Muscular but in perfect shape, with a finish as smooth as glass.  — M.S.  (6/1/2009)

López Hermanos NV Don Juan Trasañejo Pedro Ximénez (Málaga)

  • Best Buy
Super rich and syrupy, which is just the way you want it. But what makes it great is that there’s also a giant streak of balancing acidity that runs right up the gut. Reeking of prune, coffee and mocha is the nose, while the palate is pure bliss, a mix of spice, chocolate and raisin. A shining star from little-known Málaga.  — M.S.  (6/1/2005)

Sandeman NV Royal Corregidor Rich Old Oloroso Sherry (Jerez)

  1. $25
Rich and unctuous; a big, muscular, semi-sweet beauty with a meaty frame and gorgeous maple and toffee aromas. Broad-shouldered across the palate, with apricot and quince flavors accented by cinnamon and nutmeg. In terms of mouthfeel, it’s like a fine liqueur, and on the finish everything you’ve previously smelled and/or tasted comes back into perfect focus.  — M.S.  (8/1/2003)

González Byass NV Matusalem Oloroso Dulce Viejo Sherry (Jerez)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $45
Outstanding Sherry with complexity, richness and character. The nose has a salinic zest to it, making it no wallflower, and of course there’s raisin and prune. The palate is formed, sculpted and balanced, with peanut M&M’s candy, roasted fruit, chocolate ice cream and more. A beauty with power and poise.  — M.S.  (6/1/2010)

Sandeman NV Royal Ambrosante Aged 20 Years Old Solera Pedro Ximénez (Jerez)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $24
Sandeman excels with its reserve-level sherries, as is exemplified by this stand-out PX. Figs and raisins are front and center throughout, but it never sits heavily on your palate. Just the opposite, there’s plow-through acidity that creates a brilliant mouthfeel and the sensation of freshness. Fabulous by itself or on top of vanilla ice cream.  — M.S.  (6/1/2005)
