Tasting Notes
This place is no secret anymore. Heck you’ve taken a 3D tour of the place using Google Earth, but to be here! The sandstone walls are ribboned with oyster white viens, the sky is swallowed by the mountains, there is a lingering scent of boiled stones, desert flowers, white sage, lemongrass and nutmeg almost like the sand was a spice box. You tighten your leather belt, finish your toast and raspberry preserves, take a pull of Elixir Combier and walk into the sacred city.
