Aroma: Clean minerality, some herbal notes, with aromas similar to a high-proof blanco. Taste: Light and mild sweetness, with a light mouthfeel and a flavor of primarily cooked agave. Finish: Surprising! A nice vegetal and herbal finish, coupled with cooked agave, some lime zest, and black pepper.

A – Agave, black pepper, and limestone initially, giving way to strong citrus scents (equal parts lime, orange, grapefruit, lemon…I seemed to pick up subtle notes of each). Moments of cola/anise and baking spices (most notably cinnamon and clove). I also had cocoa and vanilla bean hitting my tastebuds during the nosing process. Great aroma! T – First sip instantly had me thinking green…mint, grass, jalapeno, thyme, rosemary, etc. Cooked agave settled in and stuck around while black pepper, olive, and a slight hint of smoke entered the show. F – Finish was quite good, almost exclusively cooked agave, but a little short for me. Overall – This is an everyday sipper for me. Straightforward blanco, high quality, has everything I like.
