R.C. Ivison Fino Pale Dry Sherry
It pours with a light golden color with no gas or sediment. The aromas of f dried fruits and nuts are quite pungent and remind me of aged port or passito style wines I have had before.
The body is light and from beginning to end it is dry, as I expected it to be. The flavor is of the paper like skin of a freshly cracked nut. The finish is moderate in length with some acid to clean up.
I picked this bottle up at the Boston Wine Exchange and I think it was $14.
I’m not sure what I should do with this wine beyond the occasionally cooking because it doesn’t really suit my palette. Any suggestions?
