The Selection:

Back by popular demand, Don Fede’s June 2020 ensamble was more popular than we had anticipated. Not only is this $55 expression a nice balance between friendly and complex, but it’s a great collector’s item considering what a legend the 95-year-old Maestro is.

Tasting notes:

The Espadilla adds a little heat to the rather smooth tasting Tobala. One could argue that the Cupreata expression offered is a little sweeter, smoother, and easy to drink while the Ensamble is slightly more complex and balanced.
