5 stars, 94 points, andalucia, dessert wine, jerez, Pedro Jimenez, sherry, spain
Medium amber/brown colored with high viscosity (17% ABV). The nose has intense aromas of caramel, toasted pecans, prunes, Brazil nuts, desiccated blueberry, dark chocolate ganache, dried figs and cooked chestnut- very complex. The palate is super sweet with medium acidity and a mouth filling texture, definitely full bodied! Right off the bat I get dried figs galore. The pecans, prunes, blueberry, chocolate and caramel all play supporting roles. The sweetness is on another level- this is a syrupy elixir that needs a bowl of vanilla ice cream to be drizzled onto. The finish is long and silky on this unctuous beauty that gets 94 points from me and at $30 a bottle it gets 5 stars. Drink now. Salut….
