“No wine differs so much from all others, and the differences are not merely of taste or colour, of scent or sparkle, but of kind … it is not a variant, but a primary...There is Sherry, and there are all other wines.” -Rupert Croft-Cooke, Sherry.
Sherry is one of those wines that is just incredibly underappreciated. It has a reputation as a Grandma drink, and it's what writers use to make a character seem stuff or pompous - just look at Frasier, and Mr. Banks from Mary Poppins. This is an incredible shame, because the most important thing about sherry is that it's delicious. It's sweet, but not too heavy, perfect heated and drizzled on ice cream (just ask Martha Stewart!) or added to coffee, and it makes a fantastic little treat anytime you're just too tired to bake. It's like drinking an alcoholic caramel, and it's heaven, Mount Palomar's cream sherry especially.
Since 1978 Mount Palomar has produced handcrafted sherry wines in our outdoor aging solera. It's made from Palomino grapes, and aged at least five years in the golden California sun until it's sweet, smooth, and tastes like hazelnuts and caramel. It's perfect with shortbread cookies, roasted almonds, baklava, or just on it's own.
