Wine Review: This dark brown dessert wine is actually a sherry. You would never guess this wine is made from a white grape. While it is not for everyone, those that tried it liked its style and flavors, loved it. It opens with a with an appealing raisin bouquet with hints of brown bread and fig. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, creamy and smooth. The flavor profile is plum and ripe raisin blend with notes of coffee nips, olives and molasses. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. The tasting panel was enamored by this unique wine. They suggested pairing it with a slice of pecan pie. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Select lots of Pedro Ximenez are destined for oak barrels, sealed and left for decades in single-vintage state. After a minimum of 25 years, vintages are selected for release only when they have attained classic character. Opaque, black mahogany color with a caramel-like bite.
