Even more toffee than the Solera Cream, with the obvious molasses comparison coming to mind. Black tea also very evident on the nose.

So freaking tight. Liquid desert in the best of ways.

Super concentrated. Toasted sweet almond, raisin, dried apricot and caramel. Very sweet. Better with ice cream. Impressive!

Rich, mahogany-colored in the glass. The 1927 Alvear PX is incredibly weighty, lush and dense. Golden raisin, fig purée and caramel along with an ethereal note of candied orange peel. Intensely sweet, but nicely balanced with acidity, it is entirely mouth coating and silky. Finishes with a slinky, meandering ribbon of dark chocolate. Wow.

Alvear 1927 Solera Pedro Ximénez from Montilla-Moriles D.O. Tastes of liquefied apricot candy, pancake syrup. Fruity and highly alcoholic. Had this wine with churros dipped in Dulce de Leche.

Whoa. Dark. Viscous. Massive. Liquid raisins and nuts. Looooooong finish. Perfect with vanilla ice cream.

Brown sugar, molasses, butterscotch, caramel, toffee nuts, orange peel. It's like candy. This would be great over pancakes or ice cream as well. Nice pairing well with Cari's tasty Pot de Creme. Thank you for a great evening and dinner.

Sweet fig jam, nicely balanced and silky over your - a perfect ending to this evenings line-up.
