Hidalgo Napoleon Amontillado

Winemaker Notes
True Amontillados are naturally-aged versions of the best finos, and are totally dry. Napoleon is a rare example of an authentic amontillado from manzanilla origins in a rich yet long, lean and elegant style.
Reviews
TP 95 - Tasting Panel
"A great wine: complex and expressive, melding the deep expression of amontillado and the fresh lightness of manzanilla."-P.T.
"Glorious amber color with reddish tinges. A nose laden with vanilla, almonds, coconut and mocha. Pungent, punchy palate: firm grip, very intense. Powerfully salty but with an underlying fruit note to soften the briskness. Long and superbly complex: Sherry at its unique best." -S.E.
"Deep amber hue. Very concentrated, pungent nose of toffee and roasted nuts. Bone dry palate that is very specifically manzanilla with an underlying saltiness. Well balanced and powerful." -N.R.
RP 90 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium amber, nutty... a dry style sherry, also a fine aperitif.
