Best Dessert Wine

I taste hundreds of Dessert wines every month. These are the best value Desserts I have reviewed recently: they offer terrific value for their taste and quality. These wine reviews are updated weekly.

Sandeman Herry Armada Rich Cream Oloroso
Vintages Wine Panel: This sweet yet elegant, well-balanced cream Sherry offers attractive aromas of nuts, figs and gentle spice notes. Enjoy with fresh fruit or blue cheeses. My note: If you think Sherry is just for aging Oxford dons and grandmothers, think again. This wine comes in a variety of styles from dry to sweet. This lovely sweet rendition has gorgeous notes of hazelnuts and dried fruit. You only need a few ounces per glass to make this the perfect ending to a lovely dinner. Food pairings: dark chocolate covered almonds, dark chocolate desserts, prosciutto, olive bread. Alcohol: 18%  Sweetness: Sweet  750 ml  Price: $18.95 Score: 89/100

Cave de Monbazillac Château Septy Monbazillac 2003
A.C., Southwest, France
Made with a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, which have all been touched by noble rot, Château Septy’s Monbazillac offers aromas of rich peach, pear, honey and apricot. It is a worthy substitute for Sauternes, and a terrific value. My note: An amazing dessert wine. Bursting with apple pie and pear crumbler notes.
