"Dark amber colour with hues of old gold. Deep, raisiny and nutty intense aromas and dry to very dry flavour. Reminiscent of delicate toasted pastries. It is silky and soft on the palate with hints of tasted walnut and nuts. It is full, elegant and long in the finish." —winemaker
"A beauty, with praline, flan and salted caramel notes lending a flattering edge. The core of bitter orange, gingerbread and green tea is decidedly firm and taut, while the finish picks up dried peach and passion fruit echoes. Drink now. 500 cases made." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

"Dark amber in color, the NV Asuncion Oloroso (100% Pedro Ximenez) shows honeyed caramel, nuts and almond-paste, but is richer and gives the impression of a relatively dry finish. Drink now through 2030, or even longer." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Starts out closed and dense, but with airing it hits its stride. The palate is full and chunky, with creamy, sweet flavors of honey, toffee and nuts. Shows fine texture and acidity, with toast, raisin, fig and date notes on the finish. While this may be a "dry styled" wine from Andalusia, it's more rich than dry." —Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
