Wine AdvocateThe NV Villapanes Oloroso wears a dark amber-brown robe and has a very intense nose, showing some marmalade, dark tobacco and brandy notes. The palate is textbook Oloroso, round, ample, warm, a little spirity, ending with dry walnut flavors. It manages to balance power and elegance quite well.

Wine SpectatorDisplays a flicker of sweetness running through the golden raisin and date notes, adding a flattering hint to offset the dry Brazil nut, clove, powdered ginger and salted caramel details. Stays elegant through the finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastTrue as dry oloroso comes, with nutty aromas combined with caramel richness. Feels raring to go, with pumped-up acidity that boosts otherwise normal flavors of dried white fruits, mixed nuts and brine. Tight, long and driving on the finish.
