1998 Alvear Pedro Ximénez Montilla-Moriles Reserva

  • 1998 Alvear Pedro Ximénez Montilla-Moriles Reserva – Spain, Andalucía, Montilla-Moriles (6/1/2006)
    Dark rich brown color. The nose is a bit restrained and needs time to fully open where nuts, wood, and light vanilla aromas make their way to the surface. Very sweet and yet it has an acidity that I rarely see in PX wines that seems to leave the mouth dry as you finish. Maple syrup, burnt sugars, dense chocolate, cocoa, and coffee flavors all are surrounded by a pure vanilla blanket. This is what PX should be, and I can’t think of any reason not to try this wine.
