I like this better and better as years go by. This bottle had just incredible acidity that made the wine taste so fresh and light(!), though in reality the residual sugar in this is extremely high and the depth of flavor is that of wine concentrate. Consistently great wine, and a terrific bargain as well.
Poured thicker than anything I've ever seen. Iodine and betadine on the edges leaked into a dark abyss. Very complex nose; fresh cracked egg whites, wax, hot undefined spices. Initially sherry, a mature strawberry, and then suddenly transforms into fresh blueberry hot cakes with maple syrup. Finish is 1 min plus. Fantastic.
B-day Bash - Carlisle, BDX, Nemo and more (Danny Brown - Queens): Ridiculous stuff. BTW better now than it was on release (it was a bit hot 8 years ago looking at my notes). Still looks and feels like motor oil :) Orange marmalade, figs toffee...great acidity keeping this "fresh" - as fresh as PX gets that is. (though i find Albala PX to be generally less "sticky" than many others. this isn't from Jerez - its Montilla) Look - if you can get your hands on this - do it :)
Dark brownish red color; opaque. Aromas of blackberry, lots of caramel, fig, and cigar box. Similar flavors on the palate, with the addition of molasses. Highly viscous and chewy. Big, sweet and rich. A long sweet and caramel-like finish. I brought this to a Valentine's party and, not surprisingly, some liked it and others were neutral. Good as a dessert wine.
