Nose: Fruity nose of extremely ripe pears, figs, lemon/lime, passion fruit, and baked spiced apples. Spice combination of cloves, cinnamon and light vanilla. An effervescent mineral pop to the aroma, with arid earthy overtones. Trace wood notes. Flavor: Significant spice and Szechuan pepper heat join forces with dill, basil and fine herbs. Caramel like buttery agave. Some brininess. There is a faint taste of a vinyl compound - reminiscent of a Naugahyde couch or a vinyl shower curtain. Finish: More fruit notes appear in the finish - some new teases of cherry. Persisting spice and heat fade slowly. Slight bitterness, but not to a fault. (Remy TMM 86 score) Of note: This Joven is a blanco/repo blend. This blend is then aged briefly in American Oak.
