Wine AdvocateThe extraordinary non-vintage Solera Cream represents an Oloroso sweetened by the addition of ripe Pedro Ximenez. A medium amber color is followed by a nutty, liqueur-like liquid with tremendous unctuosity and freshness in addition to a long, moderately sweet finish. It is a great after-dinner drink to enjoy by itself.

Wine SpectatorSweet, with bitter chocolate, raisin and caramel flavors on a medium-bodied frame, this has cut and a tangy finish, keeping it in check and long on the aftertaste. Well done. Pedro Ximénez. Drink now.
