Even though Casillero is a respected value-based brand, this one has integration issues. The nose seems flat and fruitless, and the palate is quite acidic yet watery. Flavors of child's vitamins and orange juice are not elevated, and in the end it's simply wet and biting. 300,000 cases made, which makes it “mass” by any definition.
