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.
Thick and potent on the nose, with aromas of prune, cola and fig. Feels dense and syrupy, with dulce de leche, cocoa and integrated citrus flavors. An unbridled winner with richness, length and raw value; how many $15 wines rank this high? Not many.
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)
