By FAR the best espadin I have had so FAR!
ALL of her juice has her touch.
If you are ever in Oaxaca, skip the overpriced bar, and drive to her house in Chichicapam. She’s not hard to find. You will make a friend and put money in the pocket of the producer. The next morning after tasting this espadin at this bar, we were on the road to track her down. It is that good!
