First made famous by a certain Edgar Allan Poe in his classic story The Cask of Amontillado (published in 1846) and then made slightly less famous in my classic blog post The Cask of Amontillado (published in April 2010) – which admittedly was mostly about Edgar Allan Poe’s story.
This wine is nutty with a bourbon-like nose and a steal at under $11.
During the process of making Amontillado the wine is placed in American butts. It means that they were placed in American oak butts, which really only means American oak barrels but it’s funnier the way I wrote it.

Thanks Edgar for the funny story about revenge, murder, and Amontillado.
