Batch TPAR. From 2017. Bottle 120/253. Funky nose. A little sour. The palate is a little thin but still tasty. I’m not getting much clay on this, nor do I get the slate taste that I normally associate with Sola de Vega. Theres a bit of salinity. I tasted this alongside the Tio Pesca Coyote is this was my favorite of the two by far.
