Cooked agave, wet earth, brine, and caramel nose with a toasty caramel touch in the finish and slight lactic taste. Reminds me of early Ochos with its agave forward profile.

2020 Cerro Grande Nose: Lightly aged oak and caramel. Cinnamon, leather and vanilla bean. Fruit and agave forward. A sweet slightly sour hard cider aroma. A harmonious nose. Flavors: A touch thin, yet a creamy feeling. Rounded spice, mature agave and butterscotch notes. Pepper notes pulling up from behind. Pineapple with a squeeze of lima. Richly sweet with a sensual nuance of leather. Just enough salinity to give balance. Finish: Fruity and spicy, with a back palate dark chocolate/coffee adiós.

2020 La Loma Nose: Fruity and lightly spiced. Green peach, pear, pineapple, lemon, and lime pith. Light cinnamon and finely ground pepper. Ripe agave and a passing whiff of minerals, and peanuts. More of a dry aroma than sweet. A somewhat subdued aroma profile. Flavors: The spices bring more zing to the tasting experience: principally cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg. Semi oily vanilla and heat envelope the tongue and back palate. Creamy marzipan with a sprinkle of dark chocolate creep in. Citrus notes, perhaps oranges and grapefruit zest. Finish: Primary departing impressions are creaminess and heat.
