"Rather fresh for a cream style, with raisin, fruitcake and toffee notes, laced with a lively green tea edge. Gentle finish. Drink now. 1,600 cases made. -JM" (WS)_

"Pretty, deep reddish brown. Actually has mor of an oloroso nose, laced with raisins and figs. A rich, sweet, but complex cream, with a host of coffee, chocolate, orange, date, and fig flavors on the finish." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Cream Sherry is a blend of Oloroso, made from the Palomino Fino grape, and Pedro Ximenez, a grape that produces dark, sweet, concentrated wines. The "Capataz Andres" is green/gold in color and features flavors of sweet raisins, dates and figs. Rich, sweet, ripe fruit lingers smoothly and seductively on the palate. This is a dessert wine, meant to drink with cakes, tarts or fruit. It can also be consumed on its own, as a digestif, after a meal.
