The NV Pedro Ximenez VORS, produced with Pedro Ximenez grapes is opaque, very dark brown, almost black-colored. It has the feeling of a very, very old, wine, with a note of coconut that I link to extreme concentration and age and that I find in other extremely old sweet wines. The nose is a symphony of dark chocolate, mocha and roasted coffee, with a thick, dense and oily palate. This is an extreme wine, very concentrated, sweet (458 grams of sugar per liter), intense and long, with a bitter touch that compensates the sweetness and makes it more drinkable. This is a beast of a wine, thick, intense and concentrated, to sip in very small quantities. A small bottle could last for years. Drink 2013-2030.

Very viscous, this rolls across the palate with a nearly brooding feel to the espresso, warm ganache, smoldering charcoal, steeped plum, prune and buckwheat honey notes. The back end picks up a flicker of chocolate-coated ginger for cut and lift. Drink now.
