PX Leyenda 18%, M Gil Luque

Deep blacky burnt umber through mahogany to yellow at rim, pronounced legs.
Deep and fairly intense aromas of pasas, toffee, caramel, miel de cana (cane honey), and dried figs,  a hint of alcohol there too. Still quite young, but very good quality.
Very fruity: liquid pasas and dried figs, viscous, unctuous and intensely flavoured with toffee predominating and a slight kick from that alcohol, quite a serious wine.
Considering this wine is only around 5 years old, it is quite intense and strong, which covers the slight lack of complexity due to its youth. It is very good, though, with considerable length.
£ 8.95 per half bottle from Drinkmonger, Edinburgh Agents Vinoceros
