  • Excerpt: he nose is quite sharp and full of mushroom notes, with a palate heavy with notes of teriyaki beef jerky, more black pepper, and grilled portobellos. A moderate smoke pervades all of this, never quite integrating with the whole, and leading to a funky, vegetal-heavy finish.

  • Intro:

    Produced in 2013 and rested for 4 years, this release from Mezcalero is a blend of agaves: Espadin, Bicuishe, Madre-Cuishe and Mexicano. Crafted by Don Garcia, this batch produced 576 bottles. Let's see how it is. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet grape, lightly nutty, sour wine and lovely crushed stone. Lemon, lime, blue cheese stuffed olive.

  • Taste:

    Sweet, loaded with cream and vanilla bean. Lemon peel, fresh cracked pepper. Light olive note. Faint mango. Lots going on. Big fan.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet and fruity. Chalky, loaded with crushed stone and faint sweetness.

  • Overall:

    Really pretty enjoyable. Pretty unique as well. Loving the fruit and crushed stone, almost come across as a fruity sauv blanc at times.
