I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

2002 Alvear Montilla-Moriles PX Fino “En Rama”

  • 2002 Alvear Montilla-Moriles PX Fino “En Rama” – Spain, Andalucía, Montilla-Moriles (6/1/2006)
    Light gold steely almost. The nose is a revelation for sherry wines showing pear, peach, and other haunting fruits that are difficult to pick out. Very dry in the mouth with an amazingly soft lush acidity. On the palate flavors of candied pear, light salt air, and a lingering soft finish make this one of the most fun wines I have tried in a long time. Bravo.
