Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Complex nose of cured black olives, crushed mint, dried oregano, and red pepper with a hint of preserved lemon. Very Mediterranean. The palate is rife with cucumber, green pepper, mint, and wildflower with profound anise components. Wild and delicious.
