Alvear "1927" Pedro Ximenez Solera Montilla-Moriles (375ml)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer.

Winery notes: "The color is purple red with ruby shades. In the nose, intese notes of violet, rose and raspberry prevail. In the mouth, the delicate residual sugar makes it pleasant and sweetish. The acidity balances the sweetness of the wine providing a perfect harmony."

2007 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes

The 2007 has an elegant bouquet with touches of tangerine and dried honey, the underlying minerality beginning to show through with further aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry, good acidity with a very taut finish that will need time to express itself. This remains one of the best value wines of the vintage.

Hidalgo Pastrana Manzanilla Pasada Sanlucar de Barrameda (375ml)

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Pasada is an old style of Manzanilla being resurrected in Jerez. Normally, a Manzanilla will have three years of aging; a pasada continues to rest in the solera as the veil of flor begins to fade. This allows the wine to begin a slow oxidation process, going beyond fruit into more complex aromas. Pastrana, selected from an extremely chalky parcel in the Pago Miraflores, is one of the best examples of this style on the market. The wine ages under its veil of flor for 12 years before bottling en rama (with minimal filtration). It ...

2004 Kopke Colheita Port

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A great mouthful of sweet fruit, flavors of ripe figs and tannins are almost lost in this delicious wine. This is hardly a classic, long-term vintage, but it's almost ready to be a hugely enjoyable wine. For lovers of rich, almost sweet Zinfandel, go back to the original model with this wine. (RV)" (11/2007) Wine Spectator: "Offers loads of mineral, mint and crushed blackberry character. Full-bodied, with a medium sweetness and a long, caressing finish. A very balanced, pretty wine. Nicely done. Best after 2010. (JS)" (12/20 ...

2004 Smith Woodhouse LBV Port

It’s gentle and refined, with a smoky edge to its bright plum and bitter almond flavors, chocolat ...

2001 Guiraud, Sauternes

96 points Wine Spectator: "Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples; full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard to refrain from drinking it now, it's so luscious and rich. *Top 100 of 2004, Highly Recommended* (JS)" (09/2004) 95 points James Suckling: "Intensely fruity and rich with wonderful sweetness and loads of spicy and honey character with a dried apricot undertone.

1977 Graham's Vintage Port

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous. (RP)" (01/1989) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This was never a great Graham, but it's outstanding quality nonetheless. Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, m ...
