Question
Could you please give me a possible time the bottle of cream sherry was bottled /sold. It is a 750 ML (25.4 FL.oz.)with a caramel colored small label showing Cuvee No. 201 G.The bottle label has 1852 Paul Masson California Rare Cream Sherry,The bottom of the bottle has imprinted 6280 and 8 on one side and 5 on the other side of the US Patent circle.I acquired the bottle through my now deceased father in 2005.

Answer
Hi Angelo,

Firstly, apologies for the late reply but this has only just been posted in the Question Pool.

Accurate dating would be impossible without access to the producer's private codes but this Californian blend - not a Sherry BTW as that only comes from around Jerez in Spain - is made in a consistent style that varies very little from bottling to bottling.

Obviously, yours must have been bottled before 2005 but that's all one could say.

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
