Bodegas Valdespino "Contrabandista" Palomino/Pedro Ximenez Sherry NV

90 Our Score
(4/2019) The Contrabandista is a unique sherry consisting of 95% Amontillado pulled from 8 years in solera with 5% Pedro Ximenez, the addition of which contributes a bit of sweetness without dampening the fruit-and-nut medley of Amontillado. The nose is full of caramel, prune jam and salted milk chocolate supplemented with orange-blossom honey and hazelnut. All of this is followed by an off-dry palate laden with walnuts and chestnuts and a rustic oakiness to balance the torched brown sugar finish. A wonderful after-dinner sherry for those in search of brightness with a touch of sweetness.

Alvear Solera 1927" Pedro Ximinez NV

(11/29/2015) "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."

Bodegas Valdespino "Tio Diego" Amontillado Sherry NV

93 Our Score
(9/2018) Wow, this is delicious! This is essentially the "Inocente" wine aged for an additional five years, made from 100% Palomino from the Macharnudo vineyard. It is lovely and dry, with deep floral and bruised orchard fruit tones, with chalky minerality and salinity. Very long and devastatingly tasty.
