Tasting Notes

The NV Reliquia Pedro Ximenez is extremely old, and can be traced back to the creation of a solera in 1921 in the Bodega del Toro in the calle Sevilla in Sanlucar de Barrameda that originated from an already old PX at the end of the 19th century. Dark, opaque mahogany color. The nose is dominated by noble woods, balsamic and medicinal notes intermixed with dates and figs, and a layer of pungent spices like nutmeg and cloves. The palate reveals a full-throttle wine, which many would find excessive (well, it IS excessive), ample, it fills your mouth with very strong, bitter flavors and an intense finish. Drink 2013-2030.
