A wonderful, rich, multifaceted dessert wine, it was a real privilege to uncork a bottle of '79 Toro Albala GR PX with good friends for a special occasion. Paired (perfectly) with candied pecans, orange/ginger cookies, and spicy cinnamon chocolate, it was one of the most memorable wine experiences of my life. Flavors of toffee, dark chocolate, raisins, figs, a variety of spices, coffee, and even orange peel were all very prominent, rotating on the palate. The nose was equally superb, and the finish was at least two minutes long. This is one of the most satisfying, value-priced wines I have ever experienced, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
