Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
Quite similar to the wine bottled by the Almacenista himself, the NV Palo Cortado de Jerez Almacenista Cayetano del Pino was selected from 22 botas aged in Jerez, which must have at some point held wine aged under flor, as it's sharp and pungent while it also has some creaminess and it's very long, lifted by a spirity finish. The wine is around 20 years of age and is a textbook example of what a Palo Cortado should be.

Rated 91 by Wine Enthusiast
The color of tanned leather, this limited production Palo Cortado from the almacen Cayetano del Pino is backed by dusty apricot and honey aromas. Classy from first pour, it's is refined but also full bodied on the palate, with integrated dried white fruit and roasted nut flavors that take a long ride into the finish.
Winery
Brilliant old gold color with amber reflections. Very clean and alive. Delicate and sharp, notes of dried fruit stand out that recall its biological stage. Very nice on the palate, it stands out for its roundness and smoothness. With a very long finish, it has a bitter touch in the aftertaste that leaves a very clean palate.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
