A – Aroma is straightforward, cooked agave, limestone, olive, brine, lemongrass, anise, ginger, allspice, mint, slight citrus. I’m picking up a hint of cocoa.   T – There is a nice alcohol tingle on the tip of my tongue before settling into the cooked agave, black pepper, minerals, some orchard fruit, celery, anise, and mint. F – I enjoyed the finish, very solid blanco. Overall – This is a well-made, quality blanco; a solid example of the expression.

This was my favorite out of a blind tasting of the top 10 additive-free blancos. I've had the regular Blanco from them before and it was meh. But this was incredible. N- unique nose out of all the samples. Cedar, wet pavement, moist soil, mint T- is that oak? earthy agave, and just tastes dusty but in a good way (I bet you've never heard that description before), bell pepper MF- oily F- Medium and balanced finish

Smells of grass, mint, pepper, a bit of alcohol. Fairly straightforward. A bold flavor! Savory, meaty notes like roasted mushroom mixed with limestone. A long and hot finish. Very interesting Blanco, but not my style.
