Dios Baco "Oxford 1.970" Pedro Ximenez Jerez (500ml)
Wine & Spirits
As if it were fig jam, the density of this PX moves slowly across the palate, filling every corner of the mouth with its exuberant flavors and sweetness. A touch of smoke appears toward the midpalate, lending a delicious balance. A wine to serve over vanilla ice cream.
With a color akin to motor oil, this lush PX Sherry smells of golden and black raisins, caramel and kumquat. In terms of feel, it’s unctuous up front, but ideally balanced on the back palate. Caramel, raisin and brown sugar flavors finish long, sticky and complex. It’s hard not to love this.
Prune, bittersweet chocolate and plum eau-de-vue notes are wrapped together in this thickly layered and velvety version. Warm Christmas pudding and toffee accents line the finish, with a flicker of date lending definition. Drink now. (Web-2013)
