Dated 05.23

Nose on this has heat to it but carries green notes, sweet mint, cut Serrano and delicate chamomile, all underlined by the scent of dry limestone. Dry stones underline the palate, with bits of Japanese sweet potato, salted cantaloupe, and white tea, leading into raw serrano carrying into classic tep pepper tones. Stone sticks through on the finish, prickly tep lingers with dried herbs and white flowers, and a pleasant bookstore dustiness to it.

Delicate, complex, and driving. Can’t sum it all up other than unreal.
