Nose – Charred Anaheim peppers. Grilled nopal cactus. Light powder sugar. A hint of Parmesan cheese.

Palate – A light entry but then big, booming flavors in the middle onward. Pine wood ember. Red bell pepper. Mint leaf. Roasted poblano pepper. Slightly buttery. Grilled corn on the cob. Sea salt. This is like a open-flame, veggie BBQ – a fabulous tepeztate. 👌
