Sherry: Not Just for Little Old Ladies," Ray Isle opens with a quiz.
But after a bit of a sherry dissertation generously followed up with this gift of sherry, I took the sherry plunge this past weekend. PLUNGE because of all the sherry varieties, this one had to be drunk in one felled swoop. No leftovers. AND NO DAWDLING. (Wiki: "Once opened it will immediately begin to deteriorate and should be drunk in one sitting for the best results.")
Also, if you research things, you drink sherry with olives. Everyone said olives. Funny. So I bought olives. Guess what: PERFECT. Like peas and carrots, those olives and sherry.
You know what sherry tastes like? Old white wine. Slightly boozy, slight caramel things. Interesting. Different.
