Soft and dry, a light, freshly nutty style of Amontillado with just a hint of wood and smoky raisins. Very attractive fresh fruit and clean acidity. The Los Arcos Amontillado is ideal as a warming aperitiff, with tapas, especially nuts and meats. It can also be served with a meal or any type of cold meat platter or richly flavored seafoods. It is best served lightly chilled in a copita or white wine glass.

Wine SpectatorThis very affordable Sherry offers a terrific combination of freshness from the walnut and iodine notes and the caramel-molasses component derived from oxidation, making this vibrant Amontillado a winner. Delicious nut and molasses aftertaste. Drink now.

Wine AdvocateThe dry, medium amber-hued non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos offers good body as well as a heady personality.

Wine EnthusiastLustau calls it dry but Los Arcos definitely has some aromatic and palate sweetness. The nose settles on brown sugar, peach, mixed nuts and honey. It's not super tight or acidic, and thus the palate drips maple and molasses. Medium-bodied and balanced, but with that shot of sugar offset by honest but mellow acids.
