Sandeman Don Fino Superior Fino Sherry NV / 500 ml.

Item#: 95540

WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2001
This starts with a complex aroma of salinity and spice, this it deepens, the flavors bringing meadow flowers to mind. Queen Anne’s lace and hemp. Lasting and refined, this is great for sipping at a tapas bar (if they’ll open a bottle as fresh as this one), delicate enough for a first course of fish.

Where It's From

Country / Spain

View more wines from Spain

The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.

SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
A lovely, high-pitched style, with a honeysuckle note out front, followed quickly by golden raisin, persimmon, glazed peach, heather and white ginger flavors. Light caramel details fill in through the finish, lending a sweet component while leaving the brightness intact. Drink now. 320 cases made, 125 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2008
Dark raisin and dried apricot flavors manifest on this immensely dark, old goldhued wine. Enormous concentration, as with the initially, almost painful acidity that comes through the spirit. This is an old wine, no question, but not too old, one to be savored in sips with all the flavors working at high intensity.

A solid value in ruby Port, Sandeman’s bottling pairs dried fruits with leathery notes to offer more than simple, grapy fruit. Finishes with fresh, spicy notes. Imported by Pernod Ricard.

Citrus zest accents provide a zesty backdrop to the lush, rich and creamy flavors of butterscotch, white chocolate and café au lait. Fresh and minerally on the finish, with notes of sea salt. Complex and pure. Drink now. 200 cases imported. (Kim Marcus)
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 1/1/2020
This is a beautifully concentrated wine. Rich and dense, it offers dried fruits, spice and intensity. The wine’s spirit edge acts as a lift, bringing out acidity, honey, walnuts and a complex perfumed aftertaste. Drink now.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
Pretty, with bergamot, date, fig and caramelized peach flavors gliding through, framed by a caramel note that lingers on the polished finish. This gains intensity as it opens in the glass. Lovely. Drink now. 780 cases made, 300 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Sandeman Vau Vintage 1997 / 1.5 L.

1997 / 1.5 L.

Item #: 2331

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/1999
Perhaps the major surprise is that one of the top wines is a single quinta Port from Sandeman, a house that, after a fairly lean period, is reaffirming its commitment to vintage Port. This is luscious, rich, almost creamy in texture, with piles of black fruit, lavender and spice.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 29, 2000
Dark purple in color, with wonderful violet, berry and cherry aromas. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a solid core of fruit and tannins. Long finish. Subtle. Best Sandeman since the 1960s. Best after 2008.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 2, 2017
Showing some maturity now, with rum raisin, toffee and buckwheat hints along the edges, while the core maintains a gentle feel of mulled plum and blackberry fruit. Reveals a touch of cinnamon on the soft-edged finish. Approachable now, in an elegant style.—1997 Vintage Port retrospective (January 2017). Drink now through 2026. 25,200 cases made. (James Molesworth)
ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - May/Jun 2000
Bright ruby. Fruity, ripe aromas of black cherry, blackberry and maple syrup. Not especially fleshy or sweet but juicy and intensely flavored, with notes of smoke, chocolate and orange peel. Finishes with lovely freshness and sneaky length. Shows modest structure for aging but this stylish wine offers considerable early appeal.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2000
George Sandeman created Vau Vintage as a new idea for a secondary declaration. It is not tied directly to a quinta’s production, as is now required for single quinta wines. Instead, it is blended from the best lots available in that vintage, but made for earlier consumption than a classic, more weighty and structured vintage would be (one simply labeled “Sandeman”). This ’97 is simple and direct, its primary black fruit chewy and unevolved. The flavor continues in a straight line, lasting and balanced. Drinkable early as a young, fruity wine, this will probably be at its best when the fruit has evolved, around 2007 to 2012.

Broad, rich and elegant, with creamy, supple flavors of butterscotch, toasted coconut and hazelnut. The luscious finish is loaded with spice and cocoa details. Seductive. Drink now. 4,000 cases imported.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
A bright style, with ginger, singed orange peel, pecan, flan and persimmon flavors that are slightly higher pitched than most tawnies. Ends with fresh cut and focused drive. Drink now. 5,900 cases made, 2,700 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2008
An elegant tawny, perfumed with soft tannins and a good edge of wood acidity and spirit. The wine is dry, densely flavored, tasting mature, showing a good balance between young sweetness and age, with everything well integrated.
RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Dec 2018
The NV 20 Years Old Tawny Porto is a typical Douro blend sourced from juice ranging from 15 to 30 years old. It was bottled in September 2018 with a Vinolok cork and 115 grams per liter of residual sugar. This adds a little power and notable complexity to the 10 Year this issue, but it seems a little understated in concentration and surprisingly mature. The brandy is a bit prominent, but that improves. Its bright and gentle demeanor won’t leave you with a “wow” impression, but it sneaks up on you and it’s easy to like eventually. It showed better a few days later, at which point it was notably improved. Maybe some bottle shock plus travel shock before it was tasted rendered it a little closed at first. It finishes with classic flavors laced with caramel nuances. There were 60,000 bottles produced.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2006
Flavors of salted caramel and orange peel give this tawny complexity. It’s warm with more citrus fruit coming up in the end. For fresh roasted almonds.

Fresh and vibrant, with good focus to the plum, dark currant and dark chocolate flavors. The balanced finish offers notes of berry and spice.
WE8787 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2011
Very jammy aromas here, while the wine is ripe and full. It has a soft character, all plum and blackberry flavors, the tannins just showing at the end to balance. (Roger Voss)

This wine’s caramel flavors become more saline as the wine opens in the glass. It’s soft in texture and voluptuous in aromas, a seductive blend of sweet, concentrated liqueur-like fruit and salt.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jun 2005
The dry, medium amber-hued non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos offers good body as well as a heady personality.

Walnut, halva, singed almond and green tea notes give this an intriguing profile, flirting with an off-dry character. Stays dry through the bitter orange-edged finish. Drink now. 4,500 cases made.

The non-vintage Rare Cream, Superior is a moderately sweet, pleasant Sherry. Do your old grandmother a favor and give her this sophisticated drink instead of Harvey’s Bristol Cream.
WS8989 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2013
With scents of baked apples and figs, this Cream stands out for its smooth softness, a texture that will meld with pastel de nueces.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2002
Elegant and complex. Beautifully balanced, this sweet Sherry bears a firm structure, lending a dryness on the finish and carrying the nut, smoke and caramel accents to a long finish. Drink now.
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2016
Offers a friendly, open-knit feel, without the overt headiness of most cream version. Sports licorice root, fruitcake and brown bread notes, laced with a hint of toasted raisin. Drink now. 400 cases made.

WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2009
Attractive caramel, apricot and peach aromas drive straight to a pure, creamy palate of cinnamon apple, mocha, coffee and chocolate. It’s quite smooth and balanced, and very long on the finish. Avoids all the pitfalls of sweet Sherry by maintaining its balance and mouthfeel.
WS8989 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2013
This is rich, but its lively acidity gives the caramel and nut flavors grace and precision. Serve it chilled, with — or in place of — a nut tart.
SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2006
The intensity of this Sherry comes from the alcohol. Roasted walnut, caramel and molasses are the flavors. Moderate length. Drink now.
