Bacanora 42° Joven – Pacifica De Sonora

Nose: This is a once in a lifetime nod to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Fresh green beans and sugar snap peas, edamame, zucchini, tomato vine, green bell pepper, green olive and celery.

Palate: Wet concrete after a rain. The mouthfeel is silky and coating, like soft water. Such an unusual start that turns to silt. A light bitterness, WW2 white pill of aspirin. Chalky and mineral, like accidentally licking chalk on my fingers in the middle of an intense rock climb. Where did all the green from the nose go?

Rating: 3 (Shane) 5 (Ryan) / 10 – 10 Minerality and mouthfeel are both fascinating and personally unappealing. Ryan still fondly remembers licking the sidewalk as a tyke. This takes him back. Vlad was horrified and kept whisper.. no .. noooo.
