Lustau Solera Reserve San Emilio Pedro Ximenez – 9.4 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

I adore Pedro Ximenez sherry’s. Sherry’s are the gift that can only come from Espana; a gorgeous digestif. I would not characterize a Pedro Ximenez as an elegant, delicate wine; rather I would call it an honest homage to one of the great wine making traditions on the planet. It is a loving wine; one that imparts not just love but closeness, warmth and certainty. Powerful words? No it is an honest assessment of a wine that should get more accolades. I enjoy this wine with Marcona almonds.

The best way to enjoy a PX is to let the wine remain in your mouth for a while; suspend the enjoyment; enjoy each flavor that cascades one over the next and back again; there is consistency and boldness in this wine. This wine is beautifully viscous; this wine gives essence of chocolate ganache, truffled honey, Adriatic fig, toasted Brazil nut, and passion fruit confit.

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
