Aged 5 years in Napa Valley Cabernet and Merlot Barrels

Extra Anejo 100% blue agave sustainably sourced from the Los Altos Highlands of Jalisco. It is rested for five years in single barrels of American Oak from a respected Napa Valley winery. This unique craft approach, using barrels that previously contained award-winning vintages of Merlot and Cabernet wines, creates a stunning tequila with a distinct dark amber-saffron color and sophisticated flavor profile.

A special edition for the company's five-year anniversary, this Tequila was aged a full five years in Napa Valley wine barrels that previously held Merlot and Cabernet. The end result is a tawny, rose-gold hue and lovely, complex fragrance that melds floral, fruity and honeyed agave, spiced up with peppery hints. At 100 proof, it's understandably fiery, but mellows with some dilution to a juicy-sweet profile that shows orange, red fruit and honey, finishing long, spiced and warm.
