    September 1, 2019 - Still enjoyable as ever, and always impresses guests with its amazing thickness.

    July 8, 2019 - Dark walnut brown with an antique pine rim. Lots of rancio on the nose with straw, raisin, fig newton, pine sap and candied citrus peel on the nose. Mouth-coating viscosity with scads of treacle, raisin pie, scotch flavoured caramels and butter tarts. Very, very sweet but not cloying thanks to the almost stinging acidity. Almost feels lightweight and fresh in the mouth even though it is decadent at the same time. Super long finish.

    July 5, 2019 - Ripe figs, prunes and raisins. Toffee and caramel. A little too sweet for my tastes. Did grow on me as the evening went on.

Full Pull

    Full Pull Sticky Cyber Tuesday, 11/28/2017

    (NV Alvear Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 375ml) Hello friends. Welcome to day two of our Cyber Monday sparkling and sticky offer. I guess we can call this Cyber Tuesday? Whatever you want to call it, today’s portion of post-Thanksgiving wine buying will be glorious, decadent sticky wines. What exactly are sticky wines? We’re talking about dessert wines, sticky and decadent in texture. Those of us who love this style of wine know that this is the one time of year when we can safely share our forbidden love with others—the holidays. The mixture of the cold weather, the desire to wear luxe fabrics, and holiday parties calls for something a little bit different. It calls for something sticky. And if circumstance forbids us from opening our stickies over this holiday season, we can rest safe in the knowledge that these categories of wines approach immortality. Another year in the cellar is only going to make these wines that much more exciting next year. Or maybe the year after that. We have six different wines for you today, so we will try to keep it brief, while still giving you all the necessary information. If stickies are not your normal category, this might just be the time to try something new. All six of these wines represent a wide range of styles and approachable price points—there is definitely something for everyone here. Wine Advocate: Copyrighted material withheld. Release after release, we are totally smitten with this motor oil of a wine: brown sugar and sultanas, cherries and figs, brown butter and coffee, mixed nuts and caramel corn. This wine, clocking in at 16% alcohol, is a rare chance to taste a wine comprised in some small part by grapes harvested in 1927. This wine is a taste of history.
