Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The NV P. X. Navazos Gran Solera May 2013, produced from Pedro Ximenez raisins, aged in the Jerez style (the botas are not filled up), originally fortified to around 18%, but with age the alcohol decreases, and at the current old age (15-20 years) it is 16.5% alcohol. The color is dark mahogany with a green-amber rim, a concentrated nose of raisins, dates, coffee, chocolate and spices with hints of mint that gives it a fresh profile. The palate reveals a thick, very dense wine, with penetrating roasted flavors of chocolate and tar. Very long, intense and persistent. These old sweet PX can last forever, and they even improve once the bottle is opened. It has 425 grams of residual sugar. Drink 2013-2025. 93 points, Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate #208
