Last reviewed in 1994 and rated Five Stars. Dark brown cola color; excellent purity. Deep aromatic notes of dates, prunes, and figs mingle and stir way deep in the sampling glass; aeration introduces a nuttiness/nougat quality that merges well with the dried fruit elements. Entry is rich, lusciously pruny, leathery, and toasty, if just a touch lighter than I recall; midpalate expands marginally on the dried/ripe fruit aspect, bringing in chewy notes of buttercream, cocoa, and vanilla bean. Very good, even excellent but not as awesome as I remember from the 1900s. Highly Recommended.

This traditional wine from Lustau is made in the Cream style. It’s dark and pretty, with PX-ish prune and caramel aromas. It’s not as thick as Pedro Ximénez, and thus isn’t syrupy. But it’s certainly rich and full of cookie, molasses, maple and brown sugar flavors. For anyone who likes a sweet Sherry that’s balanced, this is a good place to go.

This Oloroso’s dose of pedro ximénez accounts for its aromas of raisins, dried fruits and figs, as well as its creamy, spicy texture. Complex notes of cinnamon, clove, iodine and mineral details build into the finish. Serve it with cinnamon flan.

Readers looking for something weighty, sweet, and provocative should check out the non-vintage East India Solera. A blend of soleras averaging 15 to 50 years of age, it boasts a dark amber color as well as a huge nose of melted toffee, caramel, figs, and prunes. This over-the-top yet surprisingly vibrant (because of good acidity) effort is best drunk as dessert at the end of a meal.

Rich and concentrated with coffee and caramel flavors in a balanced presentation. Picks up a grilled nut accent on the finish. Solid and complex, but not cloying. Drink now.

Pure, distinctly dried-fruit (figs and dates) nose. A luscious, decidedly sweet, but balance dessert wine with coffee, chocolate, date and apricot flavors.
