Pour Ma Gueule Assemblage Itata Red Blend 2017

Smokey!! Smells like a mezcal. Acid and tannin that are nicely balanced, a 'well made wine" MM. More fruit on the palate - tart red fruits. "it's like a watered down Islay scotch" PG. Explore Chile Class! — 2 months ago

Interesting! Is it wine or tequila?

@Trixie Not tequila, although made from the same plant at times. With over 270 different types of the Agave -Mezcal is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from any type of agave. The word mezcal comes from Nahuatl mexcalli, which means "oven-cooked agave", from metl and ixcalli. Agaves or magueys are found mainly in many parts of Mexico and south to the equator, though most mezcal is made in Oaxaca.
Cheers! 🥃

Very interesting! It’s crisp and acidic but not dry. It has a fair amount salinity, and some smokiness. It was described in the Parcelle wine drop as good if you like mezcal, and I think that’s accurate, although a lot less smoky than a mezcal. — 2 months ago
