Wine AdvocateThe NV Palo Cortado Obispo Gascon, produced from Palomino grapes averaging 20 years old, and shows the telltale nose of Palo Cortado with its lactic touch and an off-dry nose of apricots, blond tobacco and spices. The palate is dominated by the salty notes (common to all Barbadillo wines), sharp, medium-bodied, with great length. Drink 2013-2019.

Wine SpectatorA plump style, with glazed peach, toasted pecan and ginger notes backed by elegant green tea, ginger and incense accents. The very dry, walnut- and iodine-edged finish holds on thanks to riveting acidity. Drink now. 150 cases made.
