Sweet aromas and flavors of butterscotch, hazelnuts, caramel and spice are balanced by acidity. The silky, smooth structure ends on a slightly smoky note.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Distinctly sweet, with muddled spice and sugar notes flittering through the core of bitter orange, caramel and date. Stays breezy and fresh on the finish, with a lively rooibos tea note. Drink now. 25,000 cases made. –JM  (Feb 29 2012)

Bodegas Dios Baco was founded in 1765 by the Vergara family and a British firm. In the early 20th century, Sr. Juan Vergara partnered with Sr. Juan Palomino to form the conglomerate, "Los Doce Disciples,” or the Twelve Disciples. The principal cellar amongst the original twelve was Bodegas Dios Baco. In 1992, the Paez Morilla family bought the property and began extensive renovations in the cellar and the vineyards. Currently managed by Jose Paez Morilla, his mission is to produce handcrafted, small-production lots of traditionally made Fino, Manzanilla, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream and Pedro Ximenez.
Technical notes
This Sherry is named after the Montilla region of Spain, where the style originated in the 18th century. Beginning as a fino, it is fortified to approximately 17.5% alcohol. Darker than a Fino but lighter than an Oloroso, Amontillados must age in barrel for a minimum of five years.
