Might have missed some in there as well.  The real standouts for me were the drappier, retro, cogno and Breton.  and ch. des jacques. and tondonia.  and mrs. VeV loved that radikon.  and really - the sherries acoss the board were stunners.   Food was great, company was outstanding.  Didnt even set a couch on fire this year.  The art wasnt bad either.




But no px?  Or did I just miss it in the long list?

Bman, the Toro Albala Marques de Poley Amontillado Viejismo Solera 1922 is actually made from PX but it’s bone dry. It was fantastic. 

Interesting. Never been much of a fine of dry sherrys but always open to trying something new.
