Almost black in colour. A pronounced and delicious bouquet of the essence of sweet raisins. The taste is very sweet, smooth, pronounced and delicous just like dried raisins or sweet grape juice. This is a very sweet dessert wine consumed on its own or with rich, fruity puddings. Also classically used as the sauce for one of the famous desserts of Jerez: ice cream with Pedro Ximénez Sherry. Serve chilled

Wine AdvocateSuperb, amazingly long and deep; golden brown; very sweet; 50 years old". Pedro Ximenez is the name of the grape that produces this extraordinarily concentrated Sherry. The "San Emilio" is almost black in color. The aroma is the essence of sweet raisins. On the palate, the wine is very sweet, smooth and unctuous.

Wine EnthusiastWith piercing aromas of raisin pudding, molasses and spice, this rolls out the welcome mat and more. Luscious is probably as tame as you can put it; this is a ribald sweet wine with acidic backbone and hugely intense flavors of baked brown sugar, cinnamon cake and molasses. Powerful but still racy due to bracing acidity. About as good as it gets with P.X

International Wine CellarReduced coffee color, massive legs. Pure raisins, dried fruit, coffee, and chocolate on the nose. As if someome boiled dates, figs and raisins together and threw in coffee and chocolate. Extremely concentrated and sweet - too sweet to drink with anything but an eye dropper. As a taster's wine or an unusual ice cream syrup, 90 POINTS, less for actual drinkability. Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer

Wine SpectatorNot the thickest Pedro Ximénez, offering fig, chocolate and caramel flavors. Sits a little heavy on the palate, with a cloying finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported.
