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.

Thick and rich, raisins, caramel, toffee. Intensely sweet almost treacle character. Over 300 g/L of residual. Wow.

Readout delicious dessert wine. Bit of oak and chocolate with a bit of sweet fruit!

Incredibly rich & lush with golden raisins, dried figs, toffee but also some golden yunnan tea and a splash of iodine.
Rich and coating on the palate with toffee and fruity molasses at the front, yet the zingy acidity cutes through and balances everything beautifully. Finish that lasts forever... with candied Leone peel, a fresh salty tang, a pinch of exotic spice.
This is incredible. Liquid history.
