I was sent a bottle of the Hermosa Ultra Premium Reposado Tequila to review. I am a huge fan of reposado so I knew I would like it I just did not know how much. It could be my new favorite, and I am saying that as I have not had all the reposado tequila’s available. I do know that they aged it just enough, on the bottle it says over 2 months but does not say exactly how many months. The law is reposado tequila must be aged at least 2 months/60 days yet may not be aged over a year (as it would then fall into the añejo category). My own personal preference is a reposado that is aged long enough to enjoy with a full meal or an appetizer like chips and salsa, yet something that is drinkable on it’s own. Many times I want a shot of repo just on it’s own, and the Hermosa reposado brand is perfect, very well balanced lots of spice and fresh agave taste yet has all the qualities pulled from the barrel aging that make reposados so popular. This reposado is light in taste, yet once it is in your mouth there are many different flavors that come through, vanilla, oak, orange and citrus while the agave is still present. This is at the top of my favorites in the reposado category and for under $50 retail it is well worth every drop, extremely smooth, 10/10.

Hermosa Casagave Reposado – Ultra Premium Tequila
Barrel aged over two months to perfection. Handcrafted from the finest Weber Blue Agave distilled in small batches. Extraordinarily smooth and balanced tequila. Beautiful inviting fresh agave with a hint of oak. Extremely smooth with a bright seductive finish.
Color & Body
Brilliantly crisp character
Hint of oak and honey
Inviting fresh agave
Beautiful fresh agave and oak
10/10 Crisp and clean with just the right hint of fruit.
The strength of this golden-yellow wine is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes on the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to age in the bottle. Brut Carte Jane offers a perfect balance of finesse and forcefulness.
2014 Hedges Family Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Review
9/10 – Savory yet very beautiful on the palate, a great buy!
Deep purple color, yet not opaque. A sense of finesse in the color which suggests liveliness on the palate. The mouth feel is angular, with grace and precision. The 2011 vintage produced a savory character in the wines, like that of fennel, salt, tar and steel. Highly integrated tannins, dusty in a sense, alongside protective acidity guarding against premature oxidation. This wine, like other Red Mountain AVA wines before, will develop beautifully for up to 25 or more years with proper cellaring. While a fine wine now with food, should develop well for drinking on its own as it slowly evolves.

10/10 – Fruit forward balanced wine with a hint of oak, great buy!
Enticing aromas of stone fruit and white blossoms lead to a rich, creamy palate of peaches, apricots, tangerine, Meyer lemon, baking spices and honey, balanced by mouth-watering acidity. A touch of oak on the lingering finish.

9/10 – Oak and bright fruit notes, fruit forward and complex
Wine Enthusiast 90 Points
Made using a specific blend of our most iconic vineyards, the 2014 Premier Old Vine Zinfandel has been aged 20 months in French Oak. The resulting wine is bright and highly aromatic with notes of blackberry, cocoa powder and cola nut. Loaded with flavors of strawberry, chocolate, anise and smoked meat, the layered complexity of this wine is complimented by its excellent weight and balance, making it a signature Old Vine Zinfandel. Fresh and refined, the plush tannins are flawlessly integrated to add a silky, regal quality to the velvety finish. A perfect wine for every day or an elegant pairing to any meal. Enjoy now through 2019.
Game Of Thrones 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Review
10/10 Light hints interwoven oak a very well made wine.
A delicious nose of blackcurrant, briar and Tahitian vanilla all interwoven through extended aging in the finest French oak barrels. A long and intensely pleasurable finish on the palate, delivers the caress of smooth tannins with a touch of cocoa.
