A naturally sweet wine, of dark dense mahogany colour. Deep rich nose reminiscent of prunes and chocolate. Sumptuous wine of great intensity, rich concentrated fruit in the mouth with a full, rich, succulence, and seemingly unending finish. Beautiful after dinner or else with rich desserts or blue cheese.

Wine EnthusiastOne of the world's best PX wines is Solera 1927, the pride of Alvear. Whatever solera stocks went into this bottling were well selected. Aromas of maple and fine wood turn to fig and caramel. Saturation and weight on the palate are expected, but this has some (though not a lot) acidic cut. Deep flavors of fig and Nutella finish with nuttiness and warmth. Drink or hold.

Jeb DunnuckThe NV Alvear Solera 1927 always seems to deliver, and releases have been incredibly consistent over the past decade or more. As always, the wine was pulled from a very old, fortified Solera blend that includes grapes going back to 1927. Full-bodied, opulent, and sexy, it's has slightly more acidity than the 2015 release as well as huge notes of figs, plums, coffee, smoked earth, and caramel. It's a big, rich, powerful wine that needs to be consumed at the end of a meal.

Wine SpectatorMenthol and prune aromas and flavors highlight this intense, sweet dessert wine. It exhibits plenty of brightness and complexity, ending with butterscotch and bitter chocolate notes. Nicely put together. Drink now.
