Bourbon For A Cause

Gonzalez Byass PX Pedro Ximénez 'Nectar' Dulce Jerez ($25) - 88 Points

Another fantastic Halloween wine pairing opportunity! The color of strong coffee and the consistency of olive oil, this is a beast of a dessert sherry. The aromatics are a shadow of what awaits in the glass and do little to brace you for what's to come. Unapologetically rich and sweet, this aptly-named sherry has intense fig and date flavors with faint celery and oak-spice notes on the long, inescapable finish. Hedonistic and very generous. Pair with the darkest chocolate you can fish out of your bag. 88 Points. (Sample)
