Compare 2018 to 2017

The anchoring flavors for Castillo del Sol are molasses and dried calimyrna fig, and these are fully present in 2018’s profile. Whereas 2017 shows off the buttery flavors of mango and avocado, 2018 is all raisin, fig, and butterscotch candy. The finish is decidedly more earthy, with its notes of carob, rather than lingering butter. The mouthfeel on 2018 is even more smooth and sumptuous than 2017.

The Orchards of Nayarit

Nayarit is a lush, verdant, coastal state of Mexico. Mangrove trees hug the Pacific coastline, sweep up into low hills smothered in sugar cane and fruit trees, and rise sharply up to 4,500 feet, where coffee plants hide beneath a pine canopy.

To walk in the dense, cool orchards of Castillo del Sol is to reimagine the Garden of Eden. The dark red, damp soil speaks of abundance and the continuity of life. On every limb, fruit of every kind drips ripe and rich.  The deep, lush hills of mango and avocado predominate the landscape, offering all their richness in every drop of nectar. Flowers of every shape and size hug in among the trees, building bright layers. The honey created is fruity sweet, dark, and rich.
