Lustau San Emilio Pedro Ximenez Sherry NV / 750 ml.

Item#: 56689

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/30/2009
With piercing aromas of raisin pudding, molasses and spice, this rolls out the welcome mat and more. Luscious is probably as tame as you can put it; this is a ribald sweet wine with acidic backbone and hugely intense flavors of baked brown sugar, cinnamon cake and molasses. Powerful but still racy due to bracing acidity. About as good as it gets with P.X.
WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - June 1, 2011
The exuberant and saturated sweet flavors of sun-ripened grapes spread throughout the entire palate, sustained by firm acidity. That acidity imposes its mineral tones, without overshadowing the seductive caramel sensation that lasts. Serve it chilled as a digestif.
WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2013
As smooth as a nutty caramel candy seasoned with spice, this PX moves slowly through the mouth, leaving a soft, warm memory in its wake. Extremely ripe, this has enough acidity to keep it from being tiring.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2011
Caramel brown in color, with the viscosity of motor oil, this is soft yet firm, carrying flavors of walnut, dried fig and burnt sugar. Sweet but not oppressively so, with a slightly bitter finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported.

Where It's From

Country / Spain

View more wines from Spain

The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.

This wine’s caramel flavors become more saline as the wine opens in the glass. It’s soft in texture and voluptuous in aromas, a seductive blend of sweet, concentrated liqueur-like fruit and salt.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jun 2005
The dry, medium amber-hued non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos offers good body as well as a heady personality.

Walnut, halva, singed almond and green tea notes give this an intriguing profile, flirting with an off-dry character. Stays dry through the bitter orange-edged finish. Drink now. 4,500 cases made.

Impressive is the superb non-vintage Manzanilla Papirusa. Its light straw color is accompanied by a spicy, nutty nose, elegant, dry flavors, delicious purity, and a smoky intensity. It would be fabulous with sushi. Drink it over the next year.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2017
Lovely quinine, verbena, white peach and lemon peel notes mingle here, with a long, rippling finish that brings you back for more. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.
WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - June 30, 2011
A textbook Manzanilla, this has all the delicate simplicity of saline––almost citrus––flavors in a fresh, elegant and balanced wine that’s enchanting in its lightness. The hint of green olive in the finish brings to mind jamón Ibérico and fresh melon to match.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/30/2009
Textbook Manzanilla! Papirusa is a clean, mildly salinic offering with green banana and toast aromas. The palate is just salty enough, but the wine’s more about almond, apple and lemon peel than saline. And the feel and finish are nutty and warm. A full-bodied but refreshing style as only Lustau can do.

Generous in its flavors of figs and nuts, this is a medium-weight moscatel, fresh enough to accompany baked apples for dessert, and sweet enough to drink on its own, after dinner.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2009
Dark brown in color, with sweet aromas of candied fruit, brown sugar and mocha. The palate is lively and warm, with zesty yet baked flavors of toffee, caramel and apricot. A little fiery and driving on the finish, with a lasting spice note. Excellent for an aged, dark-style Moscatel.
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2014
This avoids the slightly cloying edge found in most Moscatel Sherries, with bright green tea and ginger notes adding lift and freshness to the rum-soaked raisin, tiramisu and fig flavors. Drink now.

A classic Fino, this is precise in its structure and completely dry. With its mineral notes of iodine and salt, light hints of nuts and green olives and refreshing acidity, it’s almost addictive, especially if you have prawns sautéed in garlic and herbs on hand.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jun 2005
The brilliant quality of Emilio Lustau’s sherries is indisputable. Sherry remains the world’s most underappreciated and undervalued beverage, as the price for this beauty attests. The crisp, light-bodied, pungent, potent Light Fino Jarana is redolent of the smells and flavors of roasted nuts. It would be amazing with Japanese sushi or rich soups.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2014
Shows a light rancio note, with a cheesy hint giving way to rather salty lemon pulp, jicama and chalk accents. Whiffs of straw and nectarine lend some depth and flesh to the finish. Drink now.
WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/30/2009
More yellow than Lustau’s manzanilla, Jarana is a lovely, proper fino with a nose of iodine, lemon blossom and popcorn. The palate is staunch and doesn’t back down; the high-toned nut and citrus flavors seem classic and elevated. And the finish is intense and frames everything in walnut oil and toast.

WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2009
Attractive caramel, apricot and peach aromas drive straight to a pure, creamy palate of cinnamon apple, mocha, coffee and chocolate. It’s quite smooth and balanced, and very long on the finish. Avoids all the pitfalls of sweet Sherry by maintaining its balance and mouthfeel.
WS8989 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2013
This is rich, but its lively acidity gives the caramel and nut flavors grace and precision. Serve it chilled, with — or in place of — a nut tart.
SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2006
The intensity of this Sherry comes from the alcohol. Roasted walnut, caramel and molasses are the flavors. Moderate length. Drink now.

A delicate, subtle Oloroso, this has notes of nuts and dried apricots, with slightly candied touches. The texture is soft, so gentle that it’s easy to forget there’s alcohol involved. Its depths of salty flavors make it a match for braised pork cheeks, a classic dish in Andalusia.
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 2/1/2009
Opens with a wonderful set of nutty, dry aromas along with pit fruits like nectarines, apricot and peach. The palate is a cacaphony of toasty, peppery flavors sweetened by caramel and brown sugar. It has a fine feel and balance, and then finishing notes of browned butter and sautéed mushroom. Delicious oloroso.
WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - June 1, 2011
A range of salty mineral flavors melds with dried fruit notes and hints of caramel in this Oloroso, a wine of poise and delicacy that transforms its tough structure and marked acidity into silken grace. Aged for 12 years in botas. Perfect for sea ur­chin sashimi.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 29, 2012
Nicely defined, with salted caramel, date and green tea notes leading the way, backed by brisk blood orange and spice cake notes that add length and cut on the finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported.
SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2006
This off-dry oloroso delivers coffee and caramel flavors, with accents of soy and iodine. Well-balanced, with a lingering note of burnt molasses. Drink now.

The non-vintage Rare Cream, Superior is a moderately sweet, pleasant Sherry. Do your old grandmother a favor and give her this sophisticated drink instead of Harvey’s Bristol Cream.
WS8989 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2013
With scents of baked apples and figs, this Cream stands out for its smooth softness, a texture that will meld with pastel de nueces.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2002
Elegant and complex. Beautifully balanced, this sweet Sherry bears a firm structure, lending a dryness on the finish and carrying the nut, smoke and caramel accents to a long finish. Drink now.
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2016
Offers a friendly, open-knit feel, without the overt headiness of most cream version. Sports licorice root, fruitcake and brown bread notes, laced with a hint of toasted raisin. Drink now. 400 cases made.

WS9494 pts. - Wine & Spirits - June 1, 2006
Fino can be simple and fresh, saline and clean, but also massive and complex, a monument of a place like this Puerto Fino, the flagship of Lustau. The complexity here starts right from the scent, a cloud of salt, green apples and chalk. At first sip, its silky texture and salty almond flavor immediately entice; then, with air, a strong chalkiness emerges. The wine feels as if it is made of chalk and marine breezes. It’s a tremendous wine; get some fried sardines and touch heaven.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Feb 2003
A brilliant sherry from Lustau, the dry, austere, intensely flavorful non-vintage Puerto Fino exhibits a light green/amber color as well as notes of crushed sea shells, hazelnuts, and spice. This is a top-notch Fino to consume over the next year.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2006
A textbook fino. Light, crisp and tangy, offering apple, almond and iodine aromas and flavors. Balanced and refreshing, leaving a mouthwatering impression. Drink now.
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/30/2009
More yellow than most finos, with a strong, oily nose of popcorn and citric essence. The palate shows roasted corn, baked apple and salted almonds, while the finish is steady yet salty. This one really grabs your tongue and taste buds; it’s forceful, and in some ways it could probably benefit from better definition.
