Del Maguey San Luis del Rio

The Schtick: Produced in the village of San Luis del Rio, this bottling of SLdR is an old one – produced in 2012. This comes from the 3rd batch of that year, with no word as to the producer, in typical DM fashion.

Nose: Vibrant, acidic and bright. Savory – notes like vinegar, clay, lemon zest and soil dominate the nose. A hint of sweet, roasted agave.

Finish: White pepper, woody ash, cream and a bit of soil on the finish.

Overall: This is pretty nice. It’s not stealing any shows, but it’s competently made.
