2020 La Loma! Wow is this a great supper! Real agave nose. Soft, balanced entry. A slight natural sweetness. Just a pinch of heat mid palate and a long, lingering finish. Delicious!!!

Cerro Grande is my favourite from the recent releases but between this and La Loma I would have a hard time picking one. Both are excellent and are probably the best value blancos that are easily accesible in my area.

Nose: Sweet and spicy start. Minerals and earthiness. Pineapple and citrus. Cinnamon and nutmeg. A spritz of grapefruit zest. Mature agave aromas oozing natural richness. Flavor: The aromas seemed airy and ebullient. The flavors weigh in with more depth and complexity. Spice, cinnamon and pepper on the front palate. The spice warmth spreads mid palate, moving to the back palate. Back palate is host to coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and ancho pepper notes. The buttery sweetness has a dark quality to it: perhaps palm sugar, piloncillo, or light molasses? Gobs of light colored tree fruit marrying seamlessly into the blend. Coats the mouth nicely and has a balanced, pleasing finish.

Nose: A big wallop of fruity agave, dripping with sweetness; aromas of lemon, lime zest, pineapple and a kiss of mint. Chalky minerals, thyme, allspice and freshly cut grass. Flavors: Dynamic mouth filling, vibrant flavors satisfying every part of the palate. Rich oily agave dusted in sugar, cinnamon, anise and spice. Buttery roasted nuttiness. Salinity punctuated with complementary pepper punch. Rich baked tropical fruits. A great round feel in the mouth. And the finish lingers and blossoms.
