WTN: Valdespino Palo Cortado

by David M. Bueker » Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:55 pm

NV Valdespino Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palo Cortado Viejo C.P. - Spain, Andalucía, Jerez-Xérès-Sherry (12/1/2018)
Fabulous, rich, dry Sherry that showed a real depth of toasted nuts, dry honey, subtle spice and a hint of orange zest. I served it with French Onion Soup, and there were fireworks. The food and wine made for a match that enhanced both. Wonderful Sherry, that is also a great value.

Sounds fantastic. Where can you get it in New England? I noticed that the Rare Wine Company carries it, as well as its big brother, the Cardinal.

I was wondering what "C. P." means, and Google led me to this fascinating write-up: https://www.sherrynotes.com/2015/reviews/palo-cortado/viejo-cp-palo-cortado-valdespino/ .

Table & Vine had it. They no longer carry it, as they couldn’t sell it, except to me.
