Natalie's Score: 92/100
This lovely sweet-style Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 Sherry is not vintage dated but does have some wine from the 1927 vintages blended in. Dark-hued, rich and complex with aromas of fig jam, molasses and espresso. Great dessert wine.
Sherry food pairings: blue cheeses, salted nuts, fruit cake.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
This wine, technically not a Sherry since it lies outside the "Sherry Triangle," is a wonderfully different selection from Alvear.
This is not their well known solera fractional blended wine, but a single vintage dated offering. The 1927 has some aged notes and some fresh. It is a combination of multiple vontages to produce a consistent style of complexity and intensity.
This one shows Pedro Ximenez from a single point in time.
This wine is much lighter looking than the solera blended 1927. It is an orangey amber, instead of diesely, orangey black.
It has so much aromatic prettiness to offer. Orange blossom, caramel, smoke, tangerine, chocolate, vanilla, and one could go on...
Flavourwise, it is lusciously sweet and super mouthfilling. Baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg etc), chocolate orange, lemon, baked apple, maple and saffron.
Over time, it would be lovely to see how this wine ages on its own in bottle. It is a true expression of the much loved grape of Montilla-Moriles.
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
Amber in colour with aromas of toffee, vanilla, raisins and dark honey. Rich and sweet with flavours of toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, honey and maple syrup. This wine can easily be enjoyed on its own after dinner or drizzled over French vanilla ice cream. Tasted on March 11, 2018.

I'm not a sherry person but wow this was spectacular!
Flavours of caramel, raisins, baking spices with this super sweet and flavorful sherry.
Pair with coffee cake, French vanilla ice cream, or an after dinner platter of nuts and cheeses.

The adult version of maple syrup.…
Presentation: A simple, classic label
Appearance: Pale tawny
Nose: Medium nose with notes of golden raisins and nuttiness
Taste: Sweet, full body, medium acidity, low tannins, and notes of maple syrup, golden raisins, and nuttiness
Finish: long sweet maple syrup finish
Overall impression: A sweet alcohol that would be perfect on top of French toast or crêpes instead of maple syrup.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Lovely nuts, caramel, salt, and decayed flowers. Stunning with blue cheese. 93 Points.
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:|
Candied apricot, honey and brown sugar carry through to a maple syrup finish.
Beautiful with brie or rich chocolate desserts,
Tasted March 2018.
|From Montilla-Moriles in Spain, Alvear Pedro Ximenez De Añada (2014) has some of 1927 Solera vintage in it. The sherry is dark with honey, ripe figs, toffee and roast notes. Although this sherry can definitely hold for 15 years or better, at 375 ml, it's too decadently delicious to make it to 2032. - Community Wine Reviews|
