Distilled on clay, this Espadin-Tobasiche from Lalocura is the base for the infamous Rainy Season Pechuga that released at Madre some time ago.
Funky and fun - cocktail onion, garlic, beef bouillon, some sweetness and cracked pepper. Intensely earthy and savory.
Sweet on the palate, lovely cream cheese frosting notes. Pepper, salinity, rising bread, faint fruitiness and some citrus zest. Rich on the palate.
Long, savory and peppery finish. Lovely set of base notes, great character. Savory without being too aggressive, funky without becoming offputting.
Big fan all around of this. It's amazing how complex and interesting it sets out to be without going overboard in any one aspect.
