"The first few sips reveal peppery notes both in the vegetal and spicy sense, going earthy and pleasantly bitter. The mineral-rich back palate finishes with a hint of bittersweet chocolate and lime, without too much of an alcoholic burn. With a decent complexity, it's no wonder it's preferred by so many bars as a quality well blanco for margaritas, though why more don't go for it is a real head scratcher."
