What wine to serve on the 80th birthday of my father?

Last Aug 17th my father turned 80 years of age. I thought to myself, what wine should we serve on such a day? I called my friend Thomas at Clinton Wines and he thought for a minute what do I have from 1926? Since he was fresh out of wines from that vintage he suggested a 1927 Pedro Ximenez Sherry. I thought he was joking until I received my order in the mail several days later. Well I presented the wine during the birthday party and everyone would not belive me that this wine was produced 79 years ago. But the label is so new?, but this can't be... Then we tasted this marvel. Everyone got very quiet.This wine,named after the same grape varietal (Pedro Ximenez) was stunning. It had a port like quality to it with hints of raisins,nuts and other sun ripened fruit. I was in heaven. The wine was solid,smooth and had a silky finish like no other. This was one of those "wine" moments you maybe have every ten years. Everyone was impressed. Served with a light chill I went back to the bottle all alone after the party while I was sitting on my deck underneath a full moon. I lit up one of my finest Cuban Cigars and thought what a great way to celebrate such a date. When you taste a great wine like the 1927 Pedro Ximenez you will never forget the time , the date and the place in which you were able to sink your lips in such a masterpiece. P.S don't let the label fool you the wine btl is labeled when the wine is shipped out of the winery. Thank you Thomas

This is a lovely dessert wine in a solera style started nearly 80 years ago. The initial nose of fig and molasses eventually opens to reveal a subtle lemon peel in the finish. This is a superb value at ~$20. Grab as much as you can get! You can drink this by itself or I like to accompany it with a vanilla creme brulee or simply vanilla ice cream.
Nice flavor, but a little cloying.

In this day and age, will any critic label a wine "too ripe?" Maybe they should, starting with this one. There is a place for subtlety in wine, and I think this should have a little more. Subtlety, that is...
