    Winemaker's Notes:

    The vineyards, located at an elevation of 1,050 feet, are comprised of the famous chalky soil called Albariza and the 40-year-old vines produce extremely low yields. The grapes were hand-harvested at the peak of maturity and dried on mats in the sun. This is one of the oldest wines in the cellar since the Solera was started at the beginning of the last century.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The impressive 1927 Pedro Ximenez Solera, from a Solera begun nearly 80 years ago, boasts a dark amber color as well as an extraordinary nose of creme brulee, liquefied nuts, marmalade, and maple syrup. Huge and viscous, yet neither cloyingly sweet nor heavy, it is a profound effort priced unbelievably low.

    This is the most delectable dessert wine I have ever had! Its good alone, with sweets, cold, cool, or room temperature! Only problem is this could be very addictive!! Put this on your must try list!

    My first experience with PX has thoroughly spoiled me. Served properly chilled, this is a thick sip of raisin, caramel, almond joy. It's so rich, you don't need much - but that little bit is heaven enough. There are more recent vintages out there for about $5 less...but why bother? They're a little lighter on the palate, but this delectable bottle is worth easily three times its price. Before dinner, after dinner, over ice cream, on your oatmeal - you'll find any excuse to indulge.

    Very thick, and very sweet.. be sure not to have more than a small amount at a time. Predominantly tasting of raisins and burnt sugar, it was good but I would not recommend this for anyone without a severe sweet tooth.

    One of the best values I've found in high-quality dessert wines. Complex flavor profile. Terrific with assertive cheeses.

    I seem to have snagged the last three bottles of Alvear Pedro Ximinez 1927 from wine.com. I'm on a mission to find more - this is a sherry worth scavenging for.

    I had read the reviews of this particular solera and, having wanted to try something sweeter than my usual cream sherries, I thought this would be an interesting foray. I was not disappointed and it is like liquid raisin. I enjoy sipping it in a small sherry glass while listening to music or reading. An incredible price for such a stellar wine.

    This sherry is just amazing. Truly delicious, this is great with cheeses, deserts, or just as desert on its own. I bought two of these based on its price and reviews but now wish I gotten more.

    OMG. The first sip and I'm hooked. I taste marzipan and tobacco (anyone else taste tobacco?). So smooth, only the tiniest bit of alcohol noticeable. Sticky and cloying and homemade caramel lingers long. This wont make any sense to anyone but... you can taste the old.

    Mmmmmmm...on a cold evenng, with a fruit and chocolate plate, a fire/candles, good music and a good friend you will be transported. Smooth as syrup, dried currants and apricots all make for a special sipping experience.
