Wine Spectator 89 points - Shows a light rancio note, with a cheesy hint giving way to rather salty lemon pulp, jicama and chalk accents. Whiffs of straw and nectarine lend some depth and flesh to the finish. Drink now.

Wine Advocate 89 points - The NV Fino Jarana, aged in Jerez, has a beautiful, classical Fino nose of chalk, dry hay, dry straw (esparto) and nuts, while the palate is very dry, intense and pungent, long, with a pleasant bitter finish. It’s both intense and fine. Drink 2013-2014.
Dry, but full wine coming from the Lustau bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera; elegant, but rich to taste. The richness is balanced by its crisp, flor character to give a lingering aftertaste.
