The Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez is a naturally sweet wine of dark dense mahogany color. The deep rich nose is reminiscent of prunes and chocolate. A sumptuous palate of great intensity, the rich concentrated fruit offers a full, rich, succulence, seemingly unending finish.
Appellation: DO Montilla-Moriles, Spain

"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" -RP, 11/29/15

"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. Drink or hold." -MS, 9/1/17

"This rich sweetie hangs languidly, with date, rum raisin, almond cream and Turkish coffee notes lolling through, backed by toffee and toasted peanut details. Dessert on its own."nez grape, not the more common Palomino." -JM, 12/31/16
