96 points ""The impressive 1927 Pedro Ximenez Solera, from a Solera begun nearly 80 years ago, boasts a dark amber color as well as an extraordinary nose of creme brulee, liquefied nuts, marmalade, and maple syrup. Huge and viscous, yet neither cloyingly sweet nor heavy, it is a profound effort priced unbelievably low. It is meant to be drunk alone at the end of a meal." (WA) Wine Advocate: 96 pts. The vineyards, located at an elevation of 1,050 ft., are comprised of the famous chalky soil called Albariza and the 40-year-old vines are trained in the goblet system and yield 1.25 t/acre (3 t/ha). The grapes were hand-harvested at the peak of maturity and dried on mats in the sun. This is one of the oldest wines in the cellar. The Solera was started at the beginning of the last century. Production: 300 cases for the U.S. "
