Notes

EVERYTHING NICE
If there's a higher power, then Fernández-Gao's Palo Cortado would be their drink of choice. Like drinking liquid gold, this mix of sweetly toasted aromas with indulgent flavours will put you on a higher plane of existence. Dry notes of nougat, roasted nuts, vanilla.

Monthly wine subscriptions (Aficionado, Maestro) are delivered during the last week of each month. If you reserve a case apart from your subscription we deliver it as soon as possible.
If we don't have any cases on hand in Toronto you can pre-order any number. Please note, pre-ordered cases can take from 3 - 16 weeks to arrive due to importing processes and regulations...but don't worry, wine only gets better with age!
