Balanced with agave and minerality this vintage is smooth and peppery in its finish. Well worth the try.

For some reason this has shown up at a couple of retailers after being held back from the US market by Southern Wine and Spirits, the distributor in CA and other states for some Fleming Steakhouse $100 Margarita promotion bullshit. Finally tasting this blanco which should have been out 2 years ago. Citrus nose gives way to roast agave gives way to white pepper and a fade to some lingering sweetness. I don't like this as much as the 2016 Los Patos which was great, almost Ocho defining, while this is only very, very good. As if that's a bad thing, right?

Another fine vintage! Loaded with minerality and an obvious agave-forward flavor profile. Soft and creamy mouthfeel. Just enough peppery heat and a touch of mint to keep it interesting but so smooth and clean.
