Pedro Ximenez de Añada 2011

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course of one week. The 2011 pours a deep, burnt sienna color with a near opaque core; high viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is vinous with notes of dried dark fruits: sukkari dates, fig jam, Nutella, Gebrannte Mandeln (those German candied nuts that are so delicious). On the palate, the wine is sweet with medium- acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and almost cloying but thanks to the complexity and balance, it works. Like a boozy liquid, high quality Christmas fruitcake (if such a thing existed), this can only be appreciated in small portions otherwise you’ll be diabetic in no time. Well stored examples can be enjoyed now and over the next 100+ years (that’s probably a conservative estimate). — 5 days ago

Imaginador Itata Cinsault 2020

Give this one a proper 1.5 hour decant, tight, needs to relax. Also deserves proper wine glass, I used a glass tumbler.

Enjoying by the glass, it was fun to witness it unfold. Tight, earthy, tannic, and not very expressive at the beginning, later a floral and raspberry note showed up in the nose. Earthy on the pallet.

9.1 for my experience, could achieve 9.3 with proper handling.

East India Solera Sherry Palomino Fino Pedro Ximénez

This wine has a burnished look, deep brown. The nose is a treat all on its own. There are aromas of brown sugar, coffee and orange zest which combine for an amazing olfactory experience. The palate is just as joyful, with caramel, raisin and mocha notes. The acidity is fresh and exhilarating. Although the wine is described on the label as “cream,” it does not strike me as creamy. The viscosity is nice, though. It will pair well with dessert, or serve as one by itself. — 4 months ago
