"The nose is bright with citrus, white pepper, and fresh agave sugars. On the palate, this is a lithe, and bright flavor profile, with lemon marmalade, grapefruit peel, fresh agave, black pepper, and artichoke hearts. The finish is light, but enjoyable with a big kick of black pepper, before an herbal note of rosemary and mint."
