"The impressive 1927 Pedro Ximenez Solera, from a Solera begun nearly 80 years ago, boasts a dark amber color as well as an extraordinary nose of creme brulee, liquefied nuts, marmalade, and maple syrup. Huge and viscous, yet neither cloyingly sweet nor heavy, it is a profound effort priced unbelievably low. It is meant to be drunk alone at the end of a meal." ~ RP

"A rank well above most PX sweeties, with lush but fresh aromas of raisin and spice that are distinctly not syrupy or heavy. Feels thick, but there's enough acidity to cut through the wine's weight. Flavors of caramel and chocolate are ideal, and the finish is smooth, not heavy, and has bounce in its step. A beautiful PX any way you cut it."

Jancis Robinson 17.5/20
"Mid brown colour and more than a hint of rancio on the nose. Good, rich, savoury spine. Polished chestnut look. With masses of lively, raisiny sweetness on the finish. Lots of acidity and very lively. Great race. Treacle toffee essence. Much more complex and drier than Pérez Barquero’s oldest wine."

Outstanding

"A great value!"

Robert

Nice Dessert Wine

"Opened a bottle the other night it was very nice after a grilled steak dinner. Thick, dense, sweet rich are some of the words that come to mind after tasting. Notes of caramel, fig are present, Sweet but not cloying. Something to sip and savor. Generally a fan of vintage ports or sauternes, but this was a really nice desert wine. would recommend"

William

Raisin or prune?

"It is a classic. However, with all due respect, the predominant raisin flavor tends toward prune. So, 4 apples.Apple Pie Bill"
