Bodegas Toro Albalá Don PX Gran Reserva 1987
|Brand||Bodegas Toro Albalá|
Brandy-soaked prune, blueberry reduction and warm molten chocolate notes are layered here, with a rounded and very sweet finish redolent of intense black licorice. Distinctive, and not for the faint of heart. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.
A black color with a gold rim and thick legs greasing up the glass are telling, meaning this is a heavyweight. Aromas are oddly floral, like violets mixed with pencil eraser. This is well into the syrupy realm, with flavors of Mexican spiced chocolate. A slightly off mix of caramel and peppery flavors closes this out.
