NV Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez Half Bottle

Dessert and Fortified | Pedro Ximenez
"The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer."
98 PointsRobert Parker's Wine Advocate
"One of the world's best PX wines is Solera 1927, the pride of Alvear. Whatever solera stocks went into this bottling were well selected. Aromas of maple and fine wood turn to fig and caramel. Saturation and weight on the palate are expected, but this has some (though not a lot) acidic cut. Deep flavors of fig and Nutella finish with nuttiness and warmth."
96 PointsEditor's ChoiceWine Enthusiast
"Made from sun-dried Pedro Ximénez grapes that were fermented and aged in large clay jars, it reveals a ruby/amber color as well as a great nose of orange liqueur, brown sugar, honeyed figs, and flowers. Uber-full-bodied, thick, and vicious, it’s a dessert wine geared for tiny sips. It will probably age forever."
95 PointsJeb Dunnuck
"A raisiny, plum pudding-like nose with a wealth of brown-tea aromas. The palate has a sweet, rich and fleshy sultana and raisin finish. Drink now."
