Tasting Notes

"Crushed agave mingles with intimations of dried herbs and flowers on the nose; there's a soapy, lavender quality that seems nostalgically old-fashioned. The entry on the palate teases with a slight brininess bolstered by a touch of white pepper (green olives are a great accompaniment); the finish is average and consistent but brings nothing new to the party."
