Local somm said it paired well with swimming pools, so that is where I drank it. Excellent choice. Creamier mouthfeel than sparkling wine made the champagne way. Raspberries in the background with slight toast up front, but that is the extent of the complexity. Bubbles disappear too quickly, but great until then. — 4 months ago

Gran Duque de Alba Solera Gran Reserva Brandy de Jerez Airen

Not usually an “after dinner drink” with dessert but this was fantastic! I am not a sherry fan but this was a fabulous brandy/sherry flavor that made me want more. Not overly sweet and almost a slight whiskey flavor as well. — 6 months ago
