External Reviews for Alvear Px Solera
From a solera that is now in its 8th decade, this elegant dessert sherry has a dark amber hue, with flavors of crème brülée, marmalade, and toasted hazelnuts. Not nearly as syrupy as might be expected, it finishes long and clean. Wonderful when slightly chilled, either with rich desserts or on its own.
96 Pts - Robert Parker"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. It is meant to be drunk alone at the end of a meal."
