The much sweeter, honeyed, syrupy 2008 Pedro Ximenez de Anada exhibits a dark amber color along with notes of roasted nuts, molassas, Chinese black tea and honeysuckle. Rich, unctuous and full, it is best served slightly chilled after dinner.

This amber dessert wine is rich and viscous on the palate, with date, fig, honey and clove notes. Intense and sweet, without being sugary. Drink now through 2020.

Light brown and slightly translucent in color. Aromas lean toward raisin and prune, but there’s orange zest and molasses on the bouquet as well. Bores straight ahead on the palate, with sweet flavors of burnt brown sugar, caramel and prune. Satisfying and balanced even if it’s not overly comple.
