"Alvear produces a non-vintage Cream, which is essentially a sweeter style of Oloroso. Its dark amber color is accompanied by sweet, nutty, milkshake-like aromas, tremendous precision as well as intensity, and a marvelous finish." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Color is a deep mahogany color. Nose shows a slight burnt touch, and a full, soft, somewhat raisiny flavor. The palate has a clean finish and a lingering sweetness in the mouth.
