Alvear Pedro Ximenez de Anada 2004
Molasses, spice, chocolate and pure raisins define this as classic P.X. It's syrupy but not too much so, with maple, cinnamon and brown sugar flavors. For a sweet and candied dessert wine, it has excellent balance and persistence. A star among many in this category; these wines are hard not to like.
Sweet sultana, honey and a hint of orange peel mark this lively PX. It's fieriness helps tame the sweetness but pulls the wine out of balance.
