Drank half the bottle while eating dinner with friends. I usually sip separately from food but this paired very well with some shredded pork enchiladas with home made salsa verde.

Nose: Caramelized steamed agave. Floral notes and vanilla candle fragrance. A squeeze of citrus. Mint. Minerals. A subtle whiff of cooked asparagus. Flavor: Pepper and lively baking spices. Pleasing viscosity and salinity. Agave sweetness renders bass notes that add depth to the profile. A pleasant, balanced, middle of the road sipper. It should appeal to a wide range of palates.

Nose: Minerals, apricots and a spritz of lemon. Buttery sweet agave notes. Pecan pralines. A deep rich aroma profile. Flavor: Anise, pepper punch, salinity. Medium body. Floral undertones accompany orchard fruitiness. Licorice tongue teases throughout. Just a suggestion of barreling. Nice blend of heat and sweet on the finish.
